kuttu ka paratha or kuttu ki roti recipe with step by step photos. kuttu ka paratha is made during navratri fasting or other religious fast. as per the fasting rules, only certain flours and ingredients are allowed during fasting days.

kuttu ka paratha or kuttu ki roti

in north india, people who keep navratri fast use only certain flours like singhare ka atta (water chestnut flour), kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour), rajgira ka atta (amaranth flour), sama ke chawal ka atta (barnyard millet flour) and arrowroot flour. you can check my post on this list of all ingredients for navratri fasting to know more.

so kuttu ka atta is used in making many recipes during fasting days like kuttu ki poori, pakoras, halwa, dosa or you can use it as an binding agent to make tikkis. another option is to use singhare ka atta instead of kuttu ka atta. i have also shared the recipes of singhare ki poori and amaranth pooris.

buckwheat flour is devoid of gluten, so mashed potatoes are added to help bind the flour. addition of potatoes also makes it easier to roll the rotis. the rotis or parathas have to be rolled in a moist cloth or in a ziplock bag.

the method to make kuttu ka paratha is similar to making makki ki roti or bajra roti. for making rotis, you roll it slightly thin and for making parathas you can roll slightly thick. you can also use a mix of kuttu ka atta and singhare ka atta to make these rotis. you can also check rajgira paratha recipe.

these flat breads made from buckwheat flour make a good gluten free option and is good for folks who have gluten intolerance. i make these gluten free rotis not only during fasts but also on non-fasting days.

you can serve kuttu ka paratha with other vrat recipes like:

  1. dahi aloo
  2. arbi masala
  3. dahi arbi
  4. vrat wale aloo
  5. vrat ki kadhi
  6. kaddu ki sabzi
