Gluten-free pancakes prepared with buckwheat flour and water chestnut flour. Delicious and perfect for fasting!!
Navratri is around the corner, and as per my meal plan, I have delicious delicacies on my list to try this week. Sama rice vrat ki idli, vrat ka dhokla, sabudana vada, sabudana uttapam, sabudana dosa, sabudana khichdi to name a few.
Growing up fruits, dry nuts, sabudana tikki, and Kuttu and Singhare ke atte ki poori were the only options. But today I am sharing a healthy version – Kuttu and Singhare ke atte ki roti that not only tastes delicious, but it ‘s also healthy and easy to digest too.
About the flours, I have used!
Singhara flour (water chestnut flour), Kuttu flour (buckwheat flour) are gluten-free flours, and like regular wheat flour, these flours don’t have the same elasticity.
They can’t be rolled like wheat flour; instead, they need to be patted with hands to form a shape.
These healthy flours combined with few essential ingredients make a hearty meal on fasting days.
Now onto the recipe!
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and make a soft dough. As per liking, you can choose to add spinach or knead the dough with water, spices and pat it like rotis.
If the dough feels sticky, feel free to add extra flour and knead it to a dough like consistency.
Don’t forget to adjust spices if the extra flour is added.
To make it easy, a simple method is shown below where the dough is worked in between a plastic bag. Cook as shown below and enjoy with vrat ke aloo. This Navratri
EAT HEALTHY AND STAY HEALTHY.
Packed with spinach, arbi and spices these rotis tastes d-licious.
If you do not consume a particular veggie or spice during Navratri, feel free to leave that out and follow your family vrat guidelines.
