There are many kids who actually hate eating green leafy vegetables. This would be one of the best ways to feed them giving a little twist and variation that would make the dish look tempting, attractive and grab to eat. Amaranthus is commonly known as Thotakura in Telugu, Kuppacheera in Malayamlam and is a popular green veggie that is added to lentils, dals or curries. The green Amaranth leaves and stems are usually used for preparing stir-fry curries or added in soups in countries like China and Vietnam. Amaranth greens are believed to help enhance eyesight.

Amaranth greens are also called as Chinese spinach, are a common leaf vegetable throughout the tropics and in many warm temperate regions. It is very popular in India. They are a very good source of vitamins including vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin B6, vitamin C, riboflavin, and folate, and dietary minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese. Because of its valuable nutrition, many farmers grow amaranth today.
