What is Gluten?

Gluten - a protein found in wheat, semolina (rava) and its products. This condition, called gluten-sensitivity, requires one to eat foods without this particular protein. Many Indians cannot think of a meal without wheat and its by-products, but it is possible - and very tastily too!

It is a must to adapt to such recipes, because those who are gluten-intolerant need to nevertheless consume balanced meals. This section will help you achieve just that, with its vast range of recipes, which span all age groups and preferences. These delicious gluten free breakfast, gluten free Indian snacksgluten free rotis and gluten free parathasgluten free Indian desserts and some special, gluten free kids-friendly Indian recipes, will show you that gluten-free meals can be quite peppy too! And, all it takes to make these ever-popular favourites gluten-free are slight changes in the ingredients and cooking methods!

Gluten Free Indian Breakfast Recipes

Jowar Palak appe, is one such example which makes use of only jowar flour, spinach and a handful of spices. Just mix them, add water and pour the batter into apple mound. Then 5 minutes is the only wait time before you can cook and serve them.

Upma is a favourite breakfast fare in many parts of India. Being made with semolina, it doesn’t form a part of a gluten free diet. You can it in the form of Quinoa Upma, which has a similar texture and taste.

Gluten Free Indian Roti Recipes

Rotis are indefinitety the staple food of India. And wheat flour rotis are made in most households daily. However, if you check the list, wheat flour, maida, semolina and barley flour are only gluten rich flours which you have to avoid. All the other flours like bajra flour, jowar flour, ragi flour, arrowroot flour, buckwheat flour, rajgira flour etc. all can be stored in your pantry and explored to make a variety of dishes.

Bajra Cauliflower Roti which is perked with spring onions, garlic and ginger-green chilli paste is a delight in every bite. Serve it with a sabzi or a bowl of curd.

Mouth-wateringly tasty Suva Buckwheat Rotis flavoured with aromatic dill leaves, this recipe is a delightful treat for your palate. Here we have used a combination of buckwheat and jowar flour. Remember to serve them immediately, else they may turn dry.

You can make Karnataka’s famous Akki Roti, which is made with rice flour and further made aromatic and flavoursome with the use of onions, carrot, coconut, garlic, ginger, green chillies and coriander. This roti has a very soft dough, which isn’t rolled but patted directly on the tava and cooked.

Gluten Free Indian Paratha Recipes

Similarly, parathas are also not tricky. With the use of same gluten free flours you can make explore making all in one paratha to even stuffed paratha.

Spice the bland jowar flour correctly and present it in the form of Cabbage Jowar Paratha.  Just mix all together and make into an awesome paratha. The secret to getting a perfectly textured paratha is to cook it well. Cook them on a slow to medium flame till they show unifom golden brown spots on both sides.

Indian Gluten Free Kids Recipes

Cooking a gluten free fare is challenging and doing so for a kid is testing your true culinary skills. By now you must have definitely mastered making gluten free rotis and parathas, dig into this section to find more interesting recipes to please kids who cannot tolerate gluten.

All kids love pizzas! But the pizzas base being made with maida or durum wheat (both by products of wheat), it is not suggested as a gluten free fare. Here we present a gluten free pizza – Bhakhri Pizza. The base is made with jowar flour and bajra flour and cooked till crisp. Make your own pizza sauce to top on this healthy base, garnish with cheese and enjoy it!

Secondly what features on their list is pasta. Well, all you have to do is buy the gluten free pasta available in the market and mix and match with the veggies and sauce of your kid’s choice. A simple Gluten Free Pasta in Tomato Sauce is what you can surely try at home.

Pasta can also be presented in the form of Dry Pasta Snack. We have used spiral shaped pasta but you can experiment with different pasta shapes and colours, taking care not to over-boil the pasta to prevent breakage while frying. The dried mixed herbs in which the fried pasta is tossed bags the credit here.

Sev Puri is another snack which all of us love to indulge into. Again, the puris being made with maida or wheat flour is a disappointment for kids. We have made the puris with maize flour and also given a twist to the traditional recipe by topping with a corn mixture and tomato chutney. Make Gluten Free Corn Sev Puri for kid’s birthday party and you are sure to get an applause.

Gluten Free Indian Mithai / Dessert Recipes

Atta ladoo, rava ladoo, roti ladoo and atte ka sheera are some mouth-watering mithais which are difficult to resist. But Indian cuisine is quite vast. There is a lot more to explore.

You can try Besan Ladoo to Peanut Ladoo. Ready in 15 minutes, these can be carried to work or enjoyed as an after-dinner treat. The rich, nutty flavour of coarsely crushed peanuts sweetened with sugar is accentuated by the aroma of ghee and the mild hints of cardamom in this Indian sweet.

We are sure you must have yearned for cakes. While gluten free pastas are available, gluten free cakes aren’t so common. You can try our Gluten Free Chocolate Sponge Cake made with jowar flour. Though the recipe makes use of sugar substitute, you can make it with sugar. Enjoy it with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.

With striking similarities in flavour and colour, powdered cashewnuts and grated coconut get along very well in this exciting Kaju Kopra Sheera. You will surely not miss the attae ka sheera.

You can also try Jowar Banana Sheera. With young kids who have started weaning, love to lick on this smooth sweet. Bananas add extra flavour, compensating for the bland taste of the jowar flour.
