Buckwheat, locally known as Kuttu, is a versatile substitute for wheat and rice. It is characterized by its earthy flavour and can be used in savoury and sweet dishes alike, making it an essential gluten-free staple in our kitchens. Since it’s actually a seed, it can also be consumed during fasting days when grains are not allowed. It is a rich source of fibre and helps to stabilize metabolism, and it’s high copper content also increases absorption of iron in our body.
Buckwheat flour is perfect in gluten-free flour mixes and also makes a nice combination with wheat flour for sweet recipes (pancakes, waffles, cakes).
Buckwheat, whether whole or flour, is best stored in airtight containers in a cool, dry place.
