Hindus across India are gearing up to celebrate the nine-day long festival of Navratri or Sharad Navratri. Devotees will observe the Navratri fast (Vrat) for nine long days to attain blessings from the deity. It is imperative to eat simple or Satvik food. One of the most commonly used foods during fasting is buckwheat or Kuttu ka Atta that is used to prepare Satvik foods in order to offer to the deity and to eat it through the day. Buckwheat flour or Kuttu ka Atta does not come from the same family as wheat and is not a cereal grain; hence it is advised to eat during vrats.
