7. Potato & Chicken Curry Stir-fry with Roasted Buckwheat
Looking for a new grain to add variety and interest to your meals? Try buckwheat! It is actually the seed from the fruit of a plant related to rhubarb, and since it is not related to wheat, it is gluten free. Buckwheat is often eaten as kasha in North America and the ground flour is also popular in pancakes. Here the whole kernel is used to create a tasty cooked grain that is served with a simple and fragrant curry.
