Buckwheat Flour (Kuttu Flour)
Buckwheat flour, also known as Kuttu flour in Hindi, is a type of flour that is made from ground buckwheat groats. Buckwheat is a seed that is not related to wheat, making it a popular choice for those who are gluten-sensitive or gluten-intolerant.
Buckwheat flour has a distinct nutty flavour and is a rich source of protein, fibre, and essential minerals such as magnesium, manganese, and copper. It is also low in fat and calories, making it a healthy alternative to traditional wheat flour.
Kuttu flour is used to make various dishes such as kuttu ki roti, kuttu pakora, kuttu ke atte ki poori, and kuttu ka halwa. These dishes are typically served with a side of yoghurt or aloo ki sabzi (potato curry).
Buckwheat flour can also be used as a substitute for wheat flour in various recipes, especially for those who are gluten-sensitive or gluten-intolerant. It can be used to make pancakes, waffles, muffins, and other baked goods.
