Buck wheat is a whole grain which is rich in fiber and protein.

I soaked up 1 cups of buckwheat and didn't think of any recipe....hmm. I was really running out of ideas. I was already running out of time to make breakfast, so I just thought of making idli's out of it, but to my surprise, they turned out so good and fluffy than the usual idlis. I also add some zucchini, sour cream and yogurt. It was yummy and ate is just like that without any chutney or sambar. First I was tensed whether Anush will like it or not....he ate it just like he would eat the normal idli. So this is a winner recipe for me.
