Rajgira Halwa | Amaranth seeds halwa | Keerai Vidhai Halwa

Hare Krishna!

A sweet start for this year!

Rajgira - in Marathi means Royal Grain Raj - Royal Gira - grain Rajgira - Marathi English - Amaranth Seeds (Amaranth means immortal) Tamizh - Keerai Vidhai (கீரை விதை) A sathvic Halwa that can get consumed on Ekadashi day by to hose who don't follow complete fasting. Since it is not a whole grain, it is allowed in Ekadashi recipes.

This grain has highest content of calcium, rich in iron, phosphorus, magnesium. This is the only grain that has Vitamin C. Easily digestable. It reduces hunger pangs and is believed to improve eyesight. I used Jaggery. In case if you want to use sugar, then you may use upto 3/4 cup of sugar replacing jaggery.

  • Rajgira flour - 1 cup
  • Jaggery - 1 Cup (If sugar, use 3/4 cup)
  • Ghee - 1/2 cup (melted)
  • Water - 2.5 cups

Procedure :-

  • In a vessel add the jaggery and water. Heat it till the jaggery dissolves.
