Apparently, when I googled it, I saw it being mentioned on this article off Nepalitimes "http://www.nepalitimes.com/issue/2011/04/15/Nation/18119" but since I hadn't read through the entire article before, I was misled to believe that we grew it back home too.

 Quinoa is not जौ, and neither it is any of the grains they are talking about in that article, Buckwheat is फापर and Cheeno is similar to corn, but it's definitely not Quinoa. I forgot the Nepali name, but a Cheeno plant is usually taller and skinnier than a corn plant, and the grains are also smaller (about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of a corn seed). 

I'm not 100% sure but Quinoa is called लट्टे in Nepali.

लट्टे and Quinoa are not same plants... लट्टे is known as Amaranth... they are similar in some resepct but the findamental difference is that Quinoa is cool weather crop while amaranth is a warm weather one....
I donot think there is a name in Nepali language for that plant.....

 Jantare, I came to know that quinoa isn't found it Nepal. It's grown mainly in South America. 

BT, how do you cook it? I'm trying to use it as a replacement for rice too.

It's called "Chinu".



"Since they get rice from the World Food Program, no one wants to grow millet, barley or quinoa (locally known as chinu)."

Kodo is dhindo sort of thing re euta scientist le feri. Dhindo is a treasured 'delicacy' made out of buckwheat (faapar), millet (kodo), or corn (makai).

Thanks Rahulhcl. Chinu bhanya ta chinnu na jannu word bhayo ni ta. Tesaile thaha nabhayeko hola. Regardless, good to know.

On the same note what "Bhaang" seeds is called in English? I know you get it on Sprouts but can't think of the name. It's great for "Aalu ko Achar", way better than sesame seeds.

Found some wild quinoa growing. It is known as lambsquarters or goosefoot and was harvested by the native american as far back as 2,000 years ago. It is part of the chenopium family wich is found all over the world and was also harvested in ancient Nepal.

I dont think there is any nepali word for quinoa. Last time around 2yrs ago, when i was in Nepal I looked for quinoa everywhere without any luck. Probably coz its not a grain and i doubt whether it can grow in there. One of my best substitute for rice in weekdays.

I came across a store in Bhatbhateni/Baluwatar area that sells it. A kilo was Rs. 320, I think.

भातेको गन्थन !
यी पौस्टिक आहार हरु पहिले गरिबगुरुवा ले खाने गर्थे : अहिले ठिक उल्टो भएको छ | अब धनि भनाउदा हरु विदेश बाट निर्यात गरि खान सुरु गर्दै छन् अनि भाते बाट ढिडे हुने तरखरमा छन् |
मैले पनि ढिडे हौ भनेको का बाट हुनु : घरमा महाभारत सुरु भयो | उसिना चामल पनि भित्र्याउन सकिन अरु को कुरा नगरौ | कहिले काही Whole - Food बाट जौ फापर आदि किनेर ल्याऊछु अनि बिहान रोट्टा ( Pan Cake ) बनाएर खानेमा मै मात्र हुन्छु |
