What is quinoa called in Marathi.

Sorry for late reply!!
Quinoa is native to the South American continent, and has only recently become available elsewhere. It may not have a different name in marathi. It does have other names in languages indiginous to South America, though.

It is in the same family as amaranth (rajgira in marathi) but it is a bit different. The grains are larger than amaranth grains, and when cooked they don't get as porridgey or sticky as amaranth. A little more like rice, but with a deeper flavor. Not as bitter as amaranth, but not as sweet as oats.
It has large protein contents.
