samo khichdi recipe | moraiya khichdi | bhagar khichdi | farali khichdi | sanwa khichdi | with 10 amazing images.
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! Made from sama (sanwa millets), peanuts, green chillies, ginger and ghee, this samo khichdi is as simple to make.
Samo has too many names and people known it different. Bengali –Shamula, Gujarati – Sama, Hindi – Shama, Marathi – Shamul, Tamil – Kudirai Valu, Telugu – Bonta Chamalu and other names – Barnyard Millet / Samvat ke Chawal.
Ginger and green chillies give this moraiya khichdi an element of spice, while peanuts contribute crunch, flavour and aroma to this delightful dish. Serve the sanwa khichdi immediately, as millet-based dishes sometimes get lumpy on cooling.
Maharashtrians tradionally have their samo khichdi (called bhagar khichdi ) along the farali peanut chutney, but you can also have it along rajgira kadhi and curd.
This is personally my favourite farali khichdi, you don’t have to wait for a fasting day to relish it, you can also have it as your breakfast or snack.
