One look at this recipe and you know that faaral foods can be more sumptuous and often more flavourful than everyday meals! The garnish of sesame seeds and coriander is to this khichdi what a cherry is to icing! It really boosts the aroma and flavour of the Buckwheat Khichdi.


As you start making this dish, you might have some concerns about the stickiness of buckwheat, and the curdled look of the buttermilk when cooked. Worry not, everything will turn out perfectly when done! Team this irresistible khichdi with Peanut Kadhi to make a satiating meal.

  3. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add cumin seeds.
  4. When the seeds crackle, add the potatoes, mix well and cover and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.Make sure you stir it occasionally. Cook till the potatoes are half cooked.You will see them turning golden brown in color.
  5. Lower the flame, add the ginger-green chilli paste.
  6. Then add the soaked and drained buckwheat. Here are the health benefits of buckwheat.
  7. Finally, add the buttermilk(curds-water) mixture and mix well. While adding the buttermilk mixture, you might feel it is getting curdled but not to worry, it is just due to the sticky properties of buckwheat that has gone wrong.
  8. Add little sugar and rock salt and mix well. People normally use rock salt while fasting.
  9. Cover and cook on a slow flame for 5 to 6 minutes, while stirring occasionally. You have to cook it till all the liquid is evaporated.

  12. Sprinkle with freshly chopped coriander.

Super food for endurance athletes. All you have to do is drop the potatoes and follow this recipe. As buck wheat is a whole grain, its very healthy. Consuming this will not lead to an insulin surge and your fat burning process will continue.
