Buckwheat (also known as kutti no daro), which is believed to be a grain, is actually a seed of a plant crop. The buckwheat plants are usually 2 to 4 feet tall and grow during the summer. Once harvested, the outer husk is to be removed to get the triangular, wheat resembling, brownish buckwheat. Buckwheat can be eaten as a whole or in its cracked form. It is also sold as flour. Due to a distinctive nutty taste that it has, it can be easily used in various recipes as a replacement to wheat. Being a superfood, it has a much higher nutritional value than other grains and is also great for those avoiding gluten as it contains zero gluten! So let's look at this Buckwheat recipe collection!

Healthy Buckwheat (Kutto) Recipes

Buckwheat DosaBuckwheat Dosa

The main reason one should incorporate more buckwheat in their diet is due to its numerous health benefits. It not only lowers cholesterol, but is also rich in protein, fiber, magnesium and reduces the risk of diabetes. Combining buckwheat with oats and vegetables like carrots, spring onions and coriander, creates an absolute winner in terms of health to give High Fibre Chilas, which you can even switch up by adding your favorite vegetables.

On similar lines, by combining buckwheat with a little urad dal, grinding it and adding a tadka of hing and green chillies, you can even make flavorsome Buckwheat Dosas. Buckwheat is extremely good for diabetics meaning it does not release a surge in blood sugar levels. Due to this quality, switching rice for buckwheat while making simple dishes like Buckwheat, Moong and Vegetable Khichdi is a great idea. With different aromatic spices and vegetables, it will not taste any different than your regular khichdi. Even simple recipes like dhokla become much healthier with a twist of buckwheat to make Buckwheat Dhoklas.
