Kuttu and Aloo Patties for Fasting Recipe

Kuttu and Aloo Patties for Fasting Recipe

Kuttu Tikki / Kuttu and aloo patties is one of my favorite fasting dish. This is crispy and delicious in taste so you will not feel like fasting at all. Kuttu or buckwheat flour is mixed with boiled potatoes to make these patty or tikki. Combine with Dahi Aloo or Aloo Tomato to make a complete meal for your fasting day menu.

In Indian tradition and culture there are many festivals and religious occasions when people observe fast for deities and more over for their belief. Navratra/ Navratri is one of the most important festive occasion and in this festival we do fasting of 9 days continuously.

Food for Navratri

But thank God there are some option of food we can consume. These are called as Falahar or Farari Bhoj. And in these falahar dishes many flours (no grain) and vegetables are restricted like onion, garlic and many more. In fact there are limited vegetables and flour which we can eat during this vrat or fasting.

Also this choice of vegetable is different for different families or say places. So you need to stick to your family rules for selecting vegetables. Like in my home we can eat only potatoes, no tomato, no green chillies, no coriander. So we do that way. In place of green chilli, we add black pepper powder. That is bit difficult when you have only one option left. But again it matters with our belief system. No hard and fast rule.

Buckwheat flour Patty

Potatoes are more common and makes the dish more yummy. I love fasting recipes more than regular ones. Most commonly we use Buckwheat Flour (Kuttu), Water Chestnut (Singhara), Sagoo (tapioca pearl), Rajgira (Amaranth) for binding. You can make fritters, Poori, Paratha from these flours as well. They are versatile and also makes a great dish. This is also great and healthy food for kids. As it gives a different taste, kids also love such dish.

These tikki or patties are too easy to prepare. Only you need boiled and cooled potatoes. Then add any of the flour, rock salt, green chilli (if you eat). Mix well and shape them as per your choice (with greased palm). Then deep fry them and crispy patties is ready. You can have them with tea or with curd or tomato dip (different for fasting) or even with any curry made for fasting.
