Rajgira delights

Rajgira, also known as amaranth, is a nutritious and versatile grain that is commonly used in Indian cuisine. It is gluten-free, high in protein, and rich in minerals such as iron and calcium. It can be used to make a variety of dishes such as puffed snacks, sweets, and flour for making rotis. Rajgira is also considered to be a fasting food in Hindu religion during certain festivals.

There are many ways to cook Rajgira delights, but one popular recipe is to make Rajgira flour at home and use it to make a sweet dish called Rajgira Ladoo. Here’s a simple recipe:


  • 1 cup Rajgira flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder


  1. Heat ghee in a pan on medium flame.
  2. Add Rajgira flour and roast for about 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly until it turns light golden brown.
  3. Turn off the flame and add powdered sugar, cardamom powder, and chopped nuts (if using) to the pan. Mix well.
  4. When the mixture is still warm, take small portions of it and roll them into balls (Ladoos)
  5. Let the ladoos cool and solidify for a few minutes before serving.

You can also use Rajgira flour to make other sweet dishes like kheer, halwa, and pancakes or savory dishes like dosa, idli, and khichdi.
