Eggless Amaranth Flour Brownies

Eggless Amaranth Flour Brownies recipe comes to you as my baking experiment after a long time. The little one wanted a yummy snack last evening and the rajgira atta or amaranth flour lying in my pantry invited me. My previous experiments with amaranth flour were bajji and cookies

The recipe is super easy and if you follow to T. I randomly experimented with all the knowledge of healthy baking and my little experience and this now tops my best bakes list in the family. A gluten-free, white sugar-free, nearly vegan brownie turning to be an out of the world bake made my day. The baking took me less than 40 minutes but writing this and photography took me close to 6 hours. Thanks to Gouthami,my buddy on helping with photography tips.

Please read the healthy baking guide and your oven manual before you begin baking.

What is Rajgira flour/Amaranth Flour?

The flour is basically from the seeds of amaranth plant(thandu keerai/mullai keerai in Tamil). This is a seed and not a grain like other millets. They pop up the seeds and use in cooking/consumed as such /roasted and ground as flour. The amaranth plant is called Chaulai in Hindi and the seeds are named as Rajgira | Ramdana in Hindi and Marathi, Rajgaro in Gujarati, Mulai Keerai /Thandu Keerai in Tamil and seeds are called Keerai Vithai, Thotakura Ginjalu, Cheera in Malayalam and Harive in Kannada (plant name). It is actually a pseudo-grain to be very precise. It can be either red or white in colour. The flour is usually slightly ivory in colour or reddish(if seeds are red)
