What is a gluten-free recipe? Any recipe that does not use wheat and any of its components is called gluten free. Wheat is the only grain to produce an indispensable amount of gluten, though barley and rye also have some amount of gluten present but not as much as wheat. In our Indian Cuisine, there are plenty of gluten-free recipes. These recipes are prepared from seasonal, local and easily available ingredients and do not involve the use of any gluten component.
