Red Amaranthus

Red amranthus also is known as chaulai or lal saag. According to Ayurveda, the juice extracted from amaranth leaves helps in treating diarrhea and hemorrhage conditions. It is packed with carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, and vitamins, and regular consumption helps in easing digestion, excessive menstruation, and weight management. Since it is high in iron and dietary fiber, it is good for anemic patients and reduces cholesterol and risks of cardiovascular diseases. Used in making stew, lentil curry/saag, soups, fritters.
