FoodOboz editors share the main mistakes when cooking buckwheat which will spoil its flavor and texture.
You do not wash groats before cooking
Buckwheat must be washed before cooking as it contains dirt and dust. It is also very important to dry it before cooking. Fry it in a dry pan for a few minutes. This will improve the flavor of the porridge!
You don't use enough water
The classic ratio is 1 to 2. If you pour more water, the buckwheat porridge will be watery.
You boil the groats for a long time
Buckwheat should not be cooked for more than 15 minutes. The dish will be ready under the lid.
You do not add spices, only salt
Buckwheat loves spices as thanks to them its flavor is fully revealed. For example, in addition to salt and pepper, you can try adding paprika, turmeric, basil and any other spices!
