Kuttu Ka Aalu Parantha

Recipe for Kuttu Ka Aalu Parantha

Paranthas are shallow fried flatbreads from India. They are usually made with wheat flour. The flour is kneaded and then stuffed with different fillings made with potato, cauliflower, or other vegetables; then rolled, flattened and shallow fried on a pan. However, the vegetables are sometimes kneaded along with the flour too.

Although Paranthas are most commonly pan/tawa-fried, Tandoori Paranthas are also common, in which the flattened dough is baked in a Tandoor. They are usually available in restaurants and Dhabas (street-side restaurants).

Recently, I shared the recipe for Gobi Ka ParanthaDal Ka ParanthaMultigrain Methi Parantha and Soya Keema parantha. Today, the recipe I am sharing is Kuttu Ka Aalu Parantha. Kuttu means Buckwheat flour, and Aaalu means potatoes. Therefore, in this recipe, instead of using wheat flour, buckwheat flour is used. Since Buckwheat is a seed and not cereal, it is commonly consumed during fasting days in India, when people avoid eating grains like wheat and rice. Different dishes such as Kuttu Ka Parantha ( Parantha made from buckwheat flour), Kuttu ki Poori ( Fried flat bread made with buckwheat) and Kuttu ke Pakode ( fritters made from Buckwheat flour) are made during the fasting days. Buckwheat is also gluten-free. So this is a great recipe who want to eat paranthas but want to avoid the gluten that comes with wheat flour.

So, let us start with the recipe. In my recipe, I have added onions. However, when eaten on a fasting day, onions are skipped.
