|sama ke chawal ki khichdi|
Earlier I blogged about sama ke chawal ki khichdi which had only samak rice but this recipe also contains healthy vegetables which can be eaten during fasts. Addition of vegetables add to the taste as well as nutritive value of this tasty vrat ki khichdi. Remember we don't eat beans and peas (matar) in any form during Ekadashi, Janmashtami and Navratra fasts.
Recipe of sama ke chawal ki vegetable khichdi
1/2 cup sama ke chawal (samo rice/shyamak chawal/samak chawal/vrat ke chawal)
1 tbsp desi ghee (clarified butter)
Sendha salt (rock salt) - to taste
2 green chilies- chopped
Vegetables like potato, carrot, spinach, tomato, cauliflower and capsicum- chopped
2& 1/2 cups of water
How to make sama ke chawal ki vegetable khichdi
1. Wash and soak sama ke chawal. In the meantime you can chop the vegetables. Drain the water from the rice.
2. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker and add green chilies. Sauté for a minute and then add all the vegetables, salt and sama ke chawal along with 2 and 1/2 cups of water. (Idea is to add 5 times water as sama ke chawal).
3. Cook to 2 whistles. Open the lid of the cooker when pressure drops down naturally. Your sama ke chawal ki khichdi is ready.
