Kuttu Ke Pakore is another dish which is prepared in North India during the fasting days of Navratri. I learnt this dish when I went to Mastkalandar for the food tasting and demo session of Vrat Maha Thali and Utasav Maha Thali. Until this demo I did not know that a simple yet nutritious recipe could be prepared from buckwheat flour. Chef Samta Gupta demoed this recipe with absolute perfection. These pakodis turned crispy and they are perfect to satisfy your cravings for having deep fried foods during your fasting days.
During the non-fasting days, the buckwheat flour can be replaced by Ragi flour / Finger Millet flour. These will turn absolutely crispy and since they will be made with ragi, they will turn nutritious. The Sendha Namak/Rock Salt can be replaced by normal salt on non-fasting days. You can add black salt or chat masala to modify the taste during the non-fasting days.
