  1. Wash the buckwheat once and combine it with the curds in a large bowl and mix well. Allow it to stand for 1 hour. Coarsely grind the buckwheat and curds mixture in a mixer and keep aside. Add the white pumpkin, ginger-green chilli paste, coriander, turmeric powder and salt and mix well. Keep the batter aside. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the asafoetida and pour into the batter. Sprinkle the fruit salt on it and then a few drops of water on the fruit salt. When the bubbles form, mix gently. Pour ¼ of the batter on a non-stick pan and spread an even layer to make a pancake of 100 mm. (4") diameter and cover the pan. Allow it to cook for 5 to 7 minutes on a slow flame till the bottom is golden brown in colour. Lift the pancake gently and turn it over to the other side. Cook for another 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 3 more pancakes. Serve hot with carrot garlic chutney.
