Buckwheat is called "kutti-no daro" in gujarati and "kutto" in most other indian languages. This recipe is a variation of a traditional recipe, made by adding potatoes which characterize the softness and texture of this dish. Buckwheat is high in iron and fibre while curds contribute to the calcium and protein content, and potatoes provide carbohydrates and energy in this recipe. This is a farsaan called “farali handvo” that gujaratis usually make on fasting days. Cereals cannot be had on fasts but buckwheat can be had, as it is considered as farali food. If you opt for this delicacy while fasting, avoid the mustard seeds.
