Kuttu ka paratha is very common stuff prepared with buckwheat flour in India. Though I am not familiar with it, have come across many posts in Instagram during Navratri. This is made as Farhali recipe (for fasting). They use rock salt for this as they avoid table salt in such fasting recipes. I made it fully gluten free, but you can use mixture of flours too. Replace one cup with Singhare atta or regular atta too. This makes rolling easy. I referred here for recipe.

For this paratha, rolling could be tricky as it very delicate to handle. Potato is used as binding agent here also for taste since the kuttu atta is bland. But as we work with the dough, it tends to leave out moisture. So it will be difficult to handle. Make sure to prepare tight dough and roll immediately. Do not give standing time.

Also use more dusting flour for easy handling. If it sticks to the rolling platform or breaks while you take out, it means there is more moisture in the dough. Use lots of dusting flour to avoid kuttu ki atta sticking. Also make it thick. While rolling, apply pressure gently.
