One look at this recipe and you know that faraal foods can be more sumptuous and often more flavourful than everyday meals! The garnish of sesame seeds and coriander is to this khichdi what a cherry is to icing! It really boosts the aroma and flavour of the Buckwheat Khichdi. As you start making this dish, you might have some concerns about the stickiness of buckwheat, and the curdled look of the buttermilk when cooked. Worry not, everything will turn out perfectly when done! Team this irresistible khichdi with Peanut Kadhi to make a satiating meal.

Super food for endurance athletes. All you have to do is drop the potatoes and follow this recipe. As buck wheat is a whole grain, its very healthy. Consuming this will not lead to an insulin surge and your fat burning process will continue.

This recipe I tried this for auspicious shravan month. Everyone in my family liked it. This gives a filling effect, it is very tasty. My mother-in-law liked it very much. Actually it is very difficult for me to please her. Thanx to Tarlaji for giving such a nice recipe.
