Farali Masala Puri - Kuttu Ki Masala Puri - Buckwheat Masala Puri #vratkakhana #shravanmonth #faralifood

Farali Masala Puri , so tasty and delicious. It pairs perfectly with Potato and Peanut Sabji, plain yogurt and Rajgira-rajgro Seero. These farali masala puris are made with buckwheat ( Kuttu Ka Atta ), green chillies, and roasted peanuts and deep fried in oil or ghee.

Kuttu ka Atta ( Buckwheat flour ) is commonly used for fasting food by Indians. Buckwheat flour is considered to be highly nutritious, nourishing and provides energy, thus it is consumed during fasting period. Still, I am not entirely convinced to call these puris HEALTHY when they are massacred in hot oil, but to pleased your taste buds they are absolutely delicious.

So, if you are going to observe any kind of fast this coming fast and feast season, and want to try some variation,  do not forget to try this recipe, or any other Farali recipe, I am sure you'll thank me later :)
