Healthy Buckwheat Crepes (Kuttu Dosa) are instant gluten-free crepes/dosa. I’m making the savory version served along with potato scramble.
I usually don’t share the recipe on Wednesday but this recipe is especially being shared on the auspicious occasion of ‘Navratri’ (meaning nine nights) one of the holiest Hindu festivals celebrated all over India. During these nine days/nights, people worship different forms of Goddess Durga (Shakti) and many keep fast (eat glutenfree and vegetarian). Most of the fast food comprises of fresh fruits/milk/yogurt and a lot of fried dishes made using Buckwheat(Kuttu) / Water Chestnut Flour(Singhada) / Echinochloa colona Flour(Sama ka chawal).I remember while growing up, we used to love this kind of festival because of all the festival food and festivities like singing/dancing and lots of activities in Pooja Pandal (a designated public park/place for festivities). Who wouldn’t love the deep fried kachori (fried puffs) / Poori’s / special vegetables and lots and lots of sweets (You might read ‘lots n lots of sweets’ in many of my posts related to Indian festival and I’m sure by now you would have understood, our LOVE with sweets 😉
So that was then and coming back to present, with our lifestyle, I don’t think we can eat too much-fried food, so I always try to create new recipes especially for such festivals. So these ‘Buckwheat Crepes’ have become our house favorite, especially for any fasting or festivity. I usually make them with buckwheat mixed with some same ke chawal flour and spinach. I eat them as plain crepes but If you want, you can serve them along with this potato scramble (aloo ki sabzi).
Since we are using all flour mix, hence you can even call them instant. It’s also a Diabetic friendly meal or for people who are looking at eating glutenfree/fewer carbs. Since its being made for fasting, I’m using Rock Salt(Sendha Namak) but you can use regular salt as well. Did you see my ‘2 Mins Coconut Chutney‘ which goes fantastic with these delicious crepes.
