Kuttu (Buckwheat flour) poori recipe | vrat ki poori recipe

Kuttu ke Puri (कूटु के आटे की पूरी) is something which is most commonly consumed during the days of religious fasting e.g. Navratri, Shivratri, Ekadashi. This buckwheat flour poori (puffed bread) is not much different from normal puri, except that here I add grated boiled potato in the dough for that added flavour. There are few other flours like Amaranth (Rajgira) flour and Water chestnut (singhara) flour, which can be used to make fasting (vrat) food. Here I am sharing the step by step pictorial recipe of Buckwheat flour poori.

Kuttu flour is relatively easier to work with compared to Amaranth or Water chestnut. Another secret why I add potato is to make the dough hold its shape and not crumble while cooking.
