Amaranth Poori

Amaranth plant (chau lai), the herbaceous plant grown from amaranth seed, is a staple in the northern hills of India. Amaranth (rajgira) flour (atta) milled from amaranth seed is often available in two grades – coarse and fine. Finely milled amaranth flour (rajgira ka atta) is used for making amaranth poori. Coarsely ground amaranth flour is often used in making porridge and halwa. Around this time of the year, particularly during Navratri celebrations, I like to make this type of poori (or puri). Below is a picture of amaranth poori that is made with amaranth flour combined with potato.
