Samai Khichdi – Little Millet Khichdi:

Adding one more recipe to the millet cooking. Khichdi is one recipe that will be filling, satisfactory and healthy too with the vegetables added to it. Usually khichdi is made with white rave or chiroti rava. Made the same with samai rice and the taste was really awesome. Such a flavourful dish for a complete breakfast.

Little millet is very small in size, just one round bigger than the rava itself. So there is no need for turning it into rava consistency, we can just use it in its own size. A healthy dish that would be lovely to eat with coconut chutney.

  • 10. Cover the cooker and allow it to get cooked in medium flame. (I left it for 3 whistles).
  • 11. When the pressure is down, open the cover, you may find little water on top. Just mix evenly with a laddle. It would get the required consistency. If not, keep the cooker in low flame for few minutes till the water is absorbed.
