Kuttu ki Kadhi – Vrat ke Aloo: simple, delicious and quick Kuttu ki Kadhi / vrat ke aloo made using kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour), potatoes, yogurt, and spices. It’s served during Navratri festival / Navratri vrat along with Kuttu ki Poori or even Kuttu Dosa.
Navratri season is in full swing (special 9 day to worship Indian Goddess) and this kuttu ki kadhi is one of our favorite recipes during the festive season.
It’s basically a curry made using kuttu atta (buckwheat flour), along with potatoes. The combination is simmered along with basic Indian spices for few seconds.
The result is a thick bubbly and delicious kadhi / sabzi.
My recipe is really simple and comes together in 15 minutes using:
Kuttu Atta (Buckwheat Flour)
Indian Spices: turmeric, chili powder and sendha namak (Indian salt)

For many of my friends n readers who are new to these wishes/festivity, it literally means “Nav = Nine & Ratri = Nights”.
It’s the celebration of 9nights and 10days where we worship & welcome “Goddess Durga” (Also known as Shakti – the destroyer of evil) with her children to her maternal home on earth.
It’s also the beginning of good days and the onset of winter festivals in India, celebrated in different ways n passion in every state. For more information, please Click Here
That being said, many of us also fasts as a part of the celebration, worship and way of attaining mind-body peace (Don’t eat grain) for these 9days and cook food without onion and garlic.
So here’s first of my favorite recipe for the “Navratri Special Meals” – It can be made in advance and enjoyed with the whole family even if you’re not fasting.I’m making this Kuttu kadhi from buckwheat flour (Benefits of Buckwheat) to go with my Kuttu ka Dosa above.
And as we say in India to begin this festivity: “Jai Mata Di – Hail Goddess Durga”
Wishing you all a very “Happy Navratri” – May Goddess Durga Bless us with Peace, Prosperity, Health and Happiness.
