This recipe is as simple as can be, but tastier than you can ever imagine! Samo Khichdi, a faraali recipe that can be had during fasting days as well, is made by quickly sautéing all the ingredients together and cooking them for less than 10 minutes! Ginger and green chillies give this khichdi an element of spice, while peanuts contribute crunch, flavour and aroma to this delightful dish. Serve the Samo Khichdi immediately, as millet-based dishes sometimes get lumpy on cooling.

Very nice faraal recipe. I use to make this recipe in the pressure cooker, but i tried it in a different way this time. Each grain of samo is seperate in this recipe and it tastes very delicious with rajgira kadhi. I have never had such a satiating meal on my fasting days. Thanks..
