Samak ke chawal is one of the healthiest dishes in fasts. It is an easy and quick to make a recipe.
Barnyard millet is the English name of samak ke chawal. It has been eaten in the vrats all over India. People eat in almost all vrats like Navaratri, Ekadashi, Shivratri etc.
From samak we can make samak ki kheer, namkeen samak ke chawal. Today I am going to share namkeen samak ke chawal. It can be served with the aloo ka raita and dhaniya pudina ki chutni. You can see both of these recipes on my youtube channel.
Some people do not eat tomatoes during the fasts. So, if you are one of those then do not add tomatoes to this recipe.
