Moriya Ni Khichdi – (jungle Rice) Samo khichadi - Fasting recipe, Jain recipe

Today is a first day of Shravan month. Shravan month is dedicated to Lord Shiva and considered to be a holiest month in the Hindu calendar due to the many festivals that are celebrated during this time like Krishna Janmashtami, Raksha Bandhan, Nag Panchami etc. Many devotees take strict fasting for god shiva for whole month of shravan. Whereas some devotee plan to take fasting in every monday of this month. So my today post is fasting recipe to welcome this holy month.


1 cup samo
2 tsp cumin seeds
½ tbsp green chili paste (or black pepper powder)
2 tsp ginger paste (optional)
2 cup water
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil or ghee
For garnishing
Fry peanuts                                                                                               
Chopped coriander (optional)


Clean and wash samo, soaked in water for ½ hours. Heat the ghee in a non stick pan, add cumin seeds when seeds crackle add chili paste, ginger paste and sauté for second. Add samo, water and salt mix it well, cover and cook for 10 minutes on law flame. Remove from the heat and keep aside for 5 minutes.
