  1. I always saw buckwheat flour in farmer's market but never thought to use it for batter. I am thinking to mix more veggies along with potatoes for my twist on this buckwheat batter fried potatoes recipe. I liked your website and blog too
  2. I didnt knew that buckwheat flour is gluten free, thanks for this helpful information.
  3. Hi @Anastasia, thanks for visiting ChefDeHome. I like your questions. Yes, I have tried these fritters with sweet potatoes, will taste yummy, believe me. Dry mango powder can be omitted from this recipe. It is added to this for some tang. You can get Dry Mango powder from Whole Foods or Indian Grocery store. Or you can add ¼ tsp of tomato powder if available Or ½ tsp lemon zest with 1 tsp lemon juice to this batter.
  4. Have you tried this with sweet potaotes? Where do you get mango powder and can you replace it with something else?
