Vrat Ki kachori or Kuttu ki kachori/Buckwheat Pastry is a cottage cheese stuffed pastry which is shallow fried on medium heat .These are not made from wheat flour but from Buckwheat flour. In India during the fasting periods especially Navratri which falls around march and October, only fruits or ingredients made our of fruit are used to prepare food.We normally avoid eating any grains at all. Food is eaten only once in a day and only rock salt is consumed during fasting.So all the recipes are prepared using rock salt or sendha namak as called in India.
This year am trying this new recipe I tried and it came out yummy. I shallow fried it as during fasting one must avoid eating too much oil or fried stuff as it could lead to heartburn or bloating. Also, when eating buckwheat, one must include or club the meal with curd to keep the meal balanced. These flours are hot in nature and curd and sago with milk give a cooling effect to the body.
I always plan my fasting meals with one dry vegetable like Khatta Meetha Kaddu/Pumpkin and curd and Sago pudding to keep it balanced and keep my bowl stress free. This recipe is shallow fried and made on medium flame to make sure they cook till inside and remain crisp on the outside.
