Finger millet, the brown and fine mustard-like grain is a staple cereal in the Indian subcontinent.

It is said that Amaranth originated in Peru, and travelled across the globe and was the traditional staple breakfast porridge across continents. It is a really small seed and takes a shade of yellow. Documents refer to it as the ‘smallest giver of life’, indicating that it thrives well irrespective of climatic conditions, and continues to nourish people.  In a few Asian cultures, despite its size, people refer to it as ‘king seed’ or ‘seed sent by God’. Nutty and earthy in flavor, it’s used in porridges, granola bars and even as a dal.
