Sama Chawal Kheer | Samvat Rice Kheer | Kuthiraivali Payasam | Navratri Fasting Recipes

Falahari Sama Chawal Kheer , Samvat Rice Kheer or Swang Kheer, Kuthiravali Arisi Payasam, falahari kheer 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.

Swang Kheer or barnyard millet Payasam is very popular during Fasting or Navratri vrat/upvaas as during vrat only Sama or Swang rice is allow to eat. I made this kheer while I was fasting during Navratri and since I was already posting fasting or vrat recipes every day I didn't manage to post this yummy yet easy sama chawal kheer recipe so I thought of posting it later during Chaitra Navratri which falls normally in Feb-Mar period of the year.


This year Chaitra Navratri starts from 21st March 2015 to 29th March, ya I know you would think why I am posting fasting recipe now but this kheer recipe am posting now to keep the Millet Friday trend to continue as now a days I am very busy with work and I have not much to to click pictures and the pictures I have I am not able to edit them so I was having this pictures edited with me that made my life easier plus now looking at my work I am not really sure if I will be able to post anything during Chaitra Navatri !


Whether you are fasting or not, if you want to include the healthy millets in your diet then sure try this recipe, know more about millets benefits here. Try this millet payasam and you will like it too for sure.
