Rajgira (Amaranth) Poori

Rajgira is easily the very Indian super good with being source of calcium, protein and amino acids and is rich in iron, magnesium and Vitamin A, B and C. Mostly used during fasting, rajgira flour has vanished from many kitchens. With so many of it's benefits, it's time to include rajgira flour in our routine and these poories are easy, tasty way to do it. 
Here I am sharing recipe that contains whole wheat flour mixed with rajgira flour to make it easy to handle even for novice. So this poori recipe is not suitable for fasting. 
Rajgira flour becomes quite dry when kneading and for fasting recipe wheat flour can be replaced with boiled and mashed potatoes. 
This makes a great snack and also for kids lunch box you may pack it with some homemade chutney.
