Ingredients (Serves 1):
Buckwheat: 1/4 cup
|Did not have cream, hence substituted with leftover cheese powder from Pizza Hut|
Butter: 1 tbsp
Cream: 2 tbsp
Garlic: 1 clove, chopped finely
Green chilli: 1 small, shredded
Green coriander: 1 tbsp, chopped
Pepper: 1 tsp
Salt: To taste
Preparation (Cooking time 25 mins):
Roast buckwheat with salt for 5 mins in microwave at medium setting. You can skip this step, but I feel it enhances the texture and flavour.
Add 1 cup water to the roasted buckwheat, garlic, chilli and microwave at medium setting for 15 mins.
Fluff the mixture, the buckwheat should be breaking out of their shell. Add 1/4 cup water. Stir in butter, cream/ cheese, pepper and cook at low setting for 5 mins.
Fluff mixture again and leave for 5 mins so that excess water is soaked up. Garnish with egg and coriander. Serve hot.
