Samvat Rice Khichdi | Sama Khichdi | Navratri Vrat Recipes

Samvat Chawal Khichdiis quick fasting (vrat/upwas/navratri) recipe which makes excellent dish for vrat (navratri) ka khana and goes well with aloo tamatar sabzi, dahiwale kaddu or even simple raita. We can make this khichdi in no time in pressure cooker and I like to jazz up the khichdi little with spices to make it more delicious, so I added whole garam masala you can skip that too.

Even if you are not fasting but look for no onion no garlic recipe during Navratri then this is for you and you will hook this one forever :) This khichdi taste so yum with cardamom, cloves, cinnamon flavors plus ginger adds the extra zing so I strongly suggest not to miss any of these. I added carrot, tomato in the recipe but if you don't both of any of these then just skip it the khichdi will taste yum still.


Barnyard millets also known as Sama, Samvat, Jhangora, Kuthiravali (in Tamily) are high in fibre content, phosporous and calcium. Bardyard has low glycemic index and thus helps in type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease with regular intake of this millet.
