Kuttu ke Aate – Kacha Kela ki Kadhi (Buckwheat flour curry)

Navratras are a festival of welcoming a new season and are celebrated twice a year. It is such a happy time of the year and brings in a special and happiness in me. There is a scientific reason behind these 9 days of fasts in the year. Elderly say that abstaining from grains allows you to prepare the body for the new season.

I do not eat many vegetables and spices during the fasts. The only vegetables I have are potatoes, raw banana, and cucumbers. I don’t eat a lot of spices other than salt, black pepper and cumin, and mustard seeds.

I always try to make these fasts interesting by trying new recipes during these days. Here is a simple soulful kadhi I make with Kuttu ka atta and raw banana.


COOKING TIME: 20 minutes

1. Raw banana – 1
2. Curry Leaves – 2 sprigs
3. Mustard seeds – 1 teaspoon
4. Green Chilli – 1
5. Kuttu ka atta/Buckwheat Flour – ¼ cup
6. Curd – 1 cup
7. Coriander leaves – a few
8. Vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon
9. Sendha namak/Salt – to taste

1. A wok/kadhai
2. A big bowl
3. A whisk

1. In a bowl, mix in the curd, 1.5 cup water and ¼ cup of Kuttu ka Atta and keep aside.
2. Peel and dice the raw banana into small pieces.
3. In a wok or kadhai, add in a tablespoon of oil and let it heat.
4. Add in the mustard seeds and allow them to crackle. Add in the curry leaves and a slit green chili.
5. Add in the raw banana pieces and salt and cover them with a lid. Let them cook for 3-4 minutes until they are cooked.
6. Then add in the kuttu ka atta-curd mix to it.
7. Allow the kadhi to cook at low flame for about 10-15 minutes. Keep stirring in between.
8. The kadhi would be ready in about 10-15 minutes. Serve hot with kuttu ki roti or samak chawal.
