Savory Buckwheat Crepes are crispy, delicious crepes made using buckwheat flour, salt, yogurt, water and some shredded zucchini. They are also called ‘Kuttu Chilla’ or Kuttu Cheela’ in India and are vegan, glutenfree and perfect for Navratri fasting.
This week we are celebrating Indian Navratri Festival, where many fasts (not eat at all or not eat gluten) and these Savory Buckwheat Crepes or Kuttu Chilla /Kuttu Cheela is one of my favorite recipe for this occasion.
Buckwheat is also known as ‘Kuttu’ in India and is an extremely healthy grain. The buckwheat seeds are triangle in shape and also known as groats (can be eaten as porridge).
So during fasting season in India, these Buckwheat Crepes are a popular way to get healthy nutrients while still fasting.
Also, for anyone who needs to eat glutenfree due to dietary constraints, these crepes are a perfect option.
Super easy to make and comes together in minutes.
It’s an easy crepe recipe to begin with and doesn’t need many ingredients. To make it slightly more filling I’m adding zucchini, which is totally optional
Buckwheat Flour – I’m using the ones we get at Indian Stores but you can use Bob’s Red Mill or Even Any other brand.
Yogurt – I’m using vegan coconut yogurt, you can use any yogurt.
Salt + Chili Powder – I’m using Indian rock salt (sendha namak/vrat ka namak) but any salt is fine.
Shredded Zucchini – totally optional, makes a great-tasting and filling crepe.
As simple as the ingredients are, the method to make the crepes are equally easy and I’m diving it into 2 main steps:
Make the Crepe Batter:
Cooking the Crepe:
I’m, using a non-stick pan (which is great for crepes/pancakes) and use less oil/butter.
Below, you can see how beautifully the crepe cooked.
Once, all the crepes are cooked, I usually stack them one upon the other and serve.
Here are my Savory Buckwheat Crepes that I’m serving with a basic Green Chutney (the chutney has garlic, so you may avoid during Indian Festive Fastings – where you donot eat onion-garlic)
Our Savory Buckwheat Crepes are fairly thin and you can add any vegetable as stuffing too as they wrap really well.
Tips to Make Perfect Buckwheat Crepes / Kuttu Chilla:
Always leave the batter for 10-15 minutes to after whisking. This helps the batter rise a little.
You can also use Milk instead of Yogurt and create Sweet Buckwheat Crepes.
Always keep the pan well-oiled t get crispy crepes and have them not stick to any pan.
