How to Cook Best Kuttu Ka Paratha Recipe | Vrat Ka Paratha Recipe | Kuttu Ki Roti

Kuttu ka paratha is made during the Navaratri fast or some other religious fast. According to fasting rules, only certain types of flour and ingredients may be consumed on fasting days.

The main mantra of fasting is ‘ekha pauka varis’ which means just one meal in a day. This kuttu ka paratha recipe satisfies the need for a filling meal while observing fasts.

In northern India, people who observe Navratri fast use only specific flours like Kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour), singhare ka atta (water chestnut flour), sama ke chawal ka atta (barnyard millet flour), rajgira ka atta (amaranth flour), and arrowroot flour. 

During fasting days, Kuttu ka atta is used to make many different recipes such as Kuttu ki poori, pakoras, halwa, dosas, or you can even use it to bind tikkis. Another alternative is to use singhare ka atta instead of kuttu ka atta. I have also shared the recipes of Sabudana Thalipeet.

Mashed potato is added to help bind the flour since buckwheat flour lacks gluten. Rotis are also easier to roll when potatoes are added. Rotis and parathas should be rolled on a moist cloth or placed in a ziplock.

In many ways, kuttu ka parathas are similar to Makki ki rotis or bajra rotis. Roti and paratha are prepared by rolling them slightly thin or slightly thick respectively.

If you want, you can use a mixture of kuttu ka atta and singhare ka atta to make these rotis.

Flatbreads made from buckwheat flour are good for people who have gluten intolerance because they are gluten-free. In addition to making them during fast periods, I make them any day of the week that I feel like eating them.
