Kuttu ki puri recipe (Buckwheat flour poori) with step by step pictures - After a long time I am sharing a poori variety in my space. When I was browsing for North Indian puri recipes, I came across this kuttu ki puri ( Kuttu atta in Hindi, Buckwheat flour in English) under Navratri Vrat ka khana recipes. Actually the term, Kuttu atta was very new to me. When I browsed for its health benefits, I was amazed to know it.

Buckwheat is a very healthy grain that is rich in protein, fiber, good for weight loss, increases good cholesterol, detoxifies body, keeps the tummy full for long time and much more. So buckwheat flour recipes are ideal food for fasting. But I read that buckwheat flour increases heat of the body. So its advised to consume it along with curd based side dishes. So I made this puri for our Sunday breakfast along with no onion no garlic dahi aloo as side dish. Puri came out well. 

Though it was not so tasty like our regular wheat flour poori, it was good to eat. Its taste and color reminded finger millet poori to me. We had a satisfaction of having a healthy food even though its a deep fried stuff. Kids don’t like this poori. So to make them eat, you can either add equal quantity of plain wheat flour & buckwheat flour or more wheat flour and make it more tasty. I don’t think Kuttu atta is not easily available all the places. So you can buy it online from Big basket, Amazon as I did. Ok, Lets see how to make kuttu atta ki poori recipe with step by step pictures.

Here is a picture of kuttu ki atta / buckwheat flour for your reference.

  • Heat oil to deep fry. Check the oil temperature by dropping a pinch of dough. If it rises to the top immediately, oil heat is just right. No problem if the oil starts to smoke slightly.
  • Now lower the flame and drop the puri. When it starts to rise, press with a ladle and it will puff up slightly. Flip it and cook the other side till golden and crispy. Remove & drain in a tissue paper. Serve with curd based dishes like raita, dahi aloo, dahi arbi etc.
