Bhagar recipe /sama chawal pulao


Good Food

Happy Stomach

~sadhana mishra

Sama chawal is also known as barnyard millet. This dish is more popular among Maharashtra region. Main fasting recipe of everyone here is bhagar.

Wholesome and full of nutrition. This keeps you full for longer time. Best during Navratri fasting. Call it pulao or bhagar but the recipe fulfills one completely.

Bhagar

Cooking bhagar is very simple and cooks up within 10 minutes.

This recipe is also a good idea for kids lunch box or during long travels. I do cook them up on any lazy day when you don’t feel like spending much time in the kitchen.

Though in many parts of Purvanchal region people don’t consume Sama chawal during fasting, including me. But it’s best for people who eat this during fasting or any day cooking.

Let’s get the recipe card
