Amaranths also known as "Chinese Spinach" are green, leafy vegetables and/or grain crops. The leaves of vegetable amaranths and the seeds of grain amaranths are high in protein. Amaranth varies greatly in color of the foliage, the shape of the leaves and the height of the plant. Most varieties are edible.
In Konkani they are known as "Bhajji" and in Kannada as "Dhantin soppu".
I have used the red amaranths as they taste great in this curry.Here is a lovely lip smacking hot n sour side-dish which my mom often makes. Its easy to make and goes well with steaming white rice.
