Servings: 4



  • 1 small zucchini grated
  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 2 medium potatoes mashed
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • ½ tsp of fresh grated turmeric / ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp dried garlic granules / 3-4 fresh garlic cloves crushed
  • 1-2 tbsps of water
  • ½ cup of besan
  • ½ cup of buckwheat flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste



  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl & knead well till you get a wet dough
  • Make little balls and put them in between two flour dusted parchment papers
  • Roll them out (I don’t bother rolling them – I put them in a sandwich maker and press down firmly – this acts like a tortilla/roti press)
  • You could either dry fry them in a pan over the stove or use the sandwich maker (I always use parchment paper in a sandwich maker because I can’t find one that doesn’t have a non-stick coating on them)
  • Serve with mashed boiled egg (mixed with salt & pepper) or with ghee and chutney puddi like my kids like it or with tuna maybe? Or serve them plain! The options are endless.
