Russian Buckwheat Kasha Recipe

Celebrating 2023 and beyond as the year for including millets in your meals? Here is a Saatvik, soulful recipe from Russia waiting to jostle with other Ayurvedic dishes in your wishlist.


  • 1 cup buckwheat groats (Kuttu ka daliya in Hindi or deskinned Kuttu. It is better to use toasted buckwheat groats for a 30 minute meal. If toasted groats are not available, soak raw buckwheat groats overnight.)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or clarified butter
  • 1 carrot (finely grated) (You may use any other firm vegetable that you prefer, instead of carrots and peppers)
  • 1 bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Fresh dill, coriander, cilantro or mint (for garnish)


  1. Rinse the buckwheat groats thoroughly under running water.

  2. In a saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the grated carrot and chopped bell pepper. Sauté for a few minutes until slightly softened.

  3. Add the buckwheat groats to the pan and stir well to coat them with the oil and vegetables.

  4. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let it simmer for 20 minutes or more, until the buckwheat is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.

  5. Meanwhile, cook the frozen peas separately according to the package instructions.

  6. Once the buckwheat is cooked, fluff it with a fork and stir in the cooked peas. Season with salt to taste.

  7. Remove the buckwheat kasha from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes.

  8. Garnish with fresh dill before serving. You may garnish with any other greens that you have at hand like coriander, cilantro or mint.

  9. Offer with love to Sri Radha Shyamsundara and enjoy the prasad.
