Samvat Pulao | Vrat Ke Chalwa Ka Pulao | Kuthiravali Pualo | Navratri Vrat Recipes

Samvat Pulao, Sama Pulao, Vrat Ke Chawal Ke Pulao, Phalahari Pulao, Bhagar Pulao,Barnyard Millets Pulao, Kuthiravali pulao and we can call this pulao with many other names. As Navratri is approaching I decided to share some Navratri Fasting (vrat) recipes and starting the series this year with this delicious yet simple Sama Chalwa Ke Pulao. Sama Chawal is Kuthiravali in tamil, Udalu in telgu, to know more about this wonderful millet check out my millet post.

During Navratri fasting or for any fasting only Samvat (barnyard millet) is allow to get and I wanted to share this recipe for very long time but didn't manage to find sama chawal here. Finally having the millet with me I can share some easy and wonderful recipes which you can try for this Navratri fasting or upwas. Since there are lot of restrictions with fasting food I have made this recipe to suit for upwas/vrat, you can read more about fasting rules here.


This samo rice pulav is gluten-free, vegan (as I used oil and not ghee) and delicious. This pulao is delicious and all the flavors come together beautifully, as they say less is more in this recipe it's gets proven the less spices we add the more we enjoy each spice and it's flavor. Do not miss the ginger, fresh pepper corn both the ingredients adds magic to this simple pulao.


If you are looking to include millets in your diet than this Vrat ka Pulao is wonderful recipe which can be made in jiffy, you can also make this in pressure cooker but since I was not making large portion I opted for kadai. If not fasting then you can add normal table salt and vegetables like beans, peas, cauliflower etc to make it more colorful. This recipe also works great for lunch box as when the pulao gets cold also it taste yum. Try this and let me know how you liked it fasting or not fasting :)
