Amaranthus is commonly cultivated in the entire hilly parts of Uttarakhand with millets and pulses, sometimes along the border of the fields. Amaranthus leaves and grains have traditionally been part of the staple diet of the hill folk. The grains are also roasted and mixed with jiggery and eaten as ‘ladoos’, which is a rich source of phosphorous and calcium.
