Breakfast recipe from the state of Arunachal Pradesh is Khura. It is made using buckwheat flour (kutta ka aata) and the local Tibetan beer, Chang. No worries, we are not using beer at all. This khura recipe uses water instead. These are gluten-free pancakes, super simple and easy to make. Khura is a healthy breakfast option. It can be served with chutney or chai. Traditionally it is served with the butter tea prepared with Yak milk. Well, you can serve it with the chai made with regular milk.
How much do I love the recipes which do not call for many ingredients! Somehow I believe that the recipes with fewer ingredients are forgiving and of course quick to make. This recipe calls for just 4 ingredients, including water. This is all that is required to make Khura:
Buckwheat Flour (Kuttu ka Atta): It is a healthy flour. It is gluten-free. Kuttu ka atta is often used during fasts.
Water: We have replaced beer with water. The batter for khura needs to be left for some time, for an hour.
Salt: Salt to taste is added.
Butter: Butter is used to fry khura.
Serve it with a cup of hot tea.
