Kuttu ki Puri is a gluten free Buckwheat flatbread. It is an easy recipe to make. This is a Falihar, a food eaten on days of fast as grains are not eaten. Some upcoming Hindu festivals include Navaratri and Janmashtami where as a part of a fast kuttu puris are eaten or any other days when you want to try something different. The puris are made with buckwheat flour and potatoes, and mostly accompanied with potato curry or Arbi (taro root) Stir-Fry.

  1. Dear Manjula
    I am missing bread and need gluten free, yeast free and egg free.
    Since I have found your site I am having lovely breads like this for my soup, casseroles and home made veggie burgers.
    I enjoy your cutlets and your kofta type balls which I flatten to little fritters on the griddle.
    I really enjoy your recipes and noticed a bread uttapam earlier, I can use gf bread (bought) and make it good to eat now. Lovely idea,Mao quick but it will be a real standby here. Thank you.
