The last picture looks like Chaulai- Amaranthus- a leafy veg. May be Ramdana is its seed-but I am not very sure whether the chaulai the vegetable and the ramdana the seeds are part of same var. of Amaranthus.

Sir,

The entry of Amaranthus frumentaceus Buchanan, in the Flora Indica elborates :-
"...... First discovered by Dr. Buchanan, on the hills between the Mysore and Coimbetore..... cultivate it for the seed which they convert into flour....... In the Botanic Garden forty square yards of ground.... yielded twenty-one pounds weight of the clear ripe seed in September...... stems erect, often an inch or more in diameter.... colour from green to pretty deep red... leaves alternate, pretty long petioled, from oblong to broad-lanceolar, acute.... panicles terminal.... composed of many appressed. crowded spikes......"

Flora of British India equates it with the Amaranthus paniculatus L.

Thank you,

Regards,

surajit
