Rajgira/ Ramdana/Amaranth Flour Papadi Chat


This month we have the word "R" for the A to z recipe Challenge there is many ingredients that starts with R like Rajma, Rava, Ramfal, Rai, and Ramdana/ Rajgira so I choose Rajgira which is also known as Ramdana or Amaranth.

Amranth which is also known as Ramdana, is one of the oldest grains thats cultivated in India. Amranth seeds are tiny seeds that come from Amaranth plant. Amaranth is a power-packed with many healthy properties, including proteins, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, and is full of fiber.
Gluten-free flour can be used in various dishes like Halwa, Poori, Burfi, Dhokla, Kadhi, or parathas.
I made papdi using  Rajgira flour, for the binding I used Araroot which can be consumed on fasting days.

Papdi chat is a popular traditional street food from the Indian subcontinent. Crispy papdi are topped with chickpeas, white peas, boiled potato, yogurt, green chutney, tamarind chutney, and coriander leaves along with some roasted spices.
