“Can you please tell me what are these called in kannada/tamil:

1. Water chestnut (singhada/singhoda in hindi) flour

2. Amaranth seed (Amaranthus) (rajgira in marathi) flour

3. Buckwheat (kuttu in hindi) flour

Any ideas, dear readers?

2. amaranth seed (Amaranthus) (rajgira in marathi) flour = dhantinasoppu (kannada)

3. Buckwheat (kuttu in hindi) flour = kollu, kotu (tamil)
