Since Quinoa is not an Indian crop, I am not sure it has an Indian (or a Hindi) name. I have heard that it is available in few select shops in Mumbai and Bangalore. I know of this person, named Wanitha, who imports it from France and distributes it in India. You can get in touch with her via this email:wanithaashok@gamil.com

it is not an indian crop, its simply called quinoa in india. Jowar, rajgira etc can be substitutes of quinoa. Both quinoa and jowar, rajgira have same nutrition benifits.
