Buckwheat and Amaranth flours are gluten-free and they have a nice nutty and earthy flavors. The preparation method differs from our regular wheat flour. These pooris make me nostalgic as I used to relish them at my mom’s place. Whenever there was a fast in our family, my mom used to make a huge spread of fasting food. It almost felt like a feast and we all used to wait for it.
