How to Make It
Boil 2 cups of salty water.
Place 1 cup of buckwheat groats in a sieve and shake to get rid of the chaff. Examine the groats for any impurities, removing any that are discolored.
Place the groats in a large straight-sided skillet and toast them over a medium flame, shaking the pan occasionally to warm them through, taking care not to burn.
Add the boiling water to the skillet, reduce the flame to the lowest heat, cover with a kitchen towel and a lid to keep the steam in.
