Sama Ke Mungfali Chawal | Kuthiravali Peanut Rice | Navratri Vrat Recipes

Falahari Sama Ke Mungfali Chawal , Samvat mungfali chawal or Swang Fali Ke Chawal, Kuthiravali Peanut Rice, Kuthiravali verkadalai sadam, falahari peanut rice is made from sama chawal also known in English as Barnyard Millets, Kuthiravali in Tamil, Udalu in Telugu, Shyama in Bengali, Khira in Oriya, Swank in Punjabi, Kavadapullu in Malayalam, Oodalu in Kannada plus other names for Samwat chawal are bhagar, varai chawal, vari chawal,saanwa, saunfiya, samkiye, swang, samvat.

I was thinking what to do something different with swang or barnyard millet for Navratri vrat/upvaas and decided to try peanut rice with it inspired from South Indian style Peanut Rice and it has been a very wise decision, this sama peanut rice is very flavorful, slightly spicy and delicious. Barnyard millet or swang itself has slight nutty flavor along with peanuts it's taste wonderful magic.


I have already made this samvat mungfali chawal or Kuthiravali verkadalai sadam few times during fasting and I love this every time, if you looks for something different yet very easy then you will sure like it. We can just prepare the rice and make this peanut rice any time, or making sama rice and peanut mixture side by side also can be done in jiffy.  Check out more millets recipes here.


Whether you are fasting or not, if you want to include the healthy millets in your diet then sure try this recipe, and while not fasting you can add regular salt.   Know more about millets benefits here. We also doesn't really require any side dish with this sama peanut rice but you can serve with chips or fryums. It's also makes great lunch box recipe as it taste good even if cold. Do try it and let me know how you liked.
