Sama Ke Chawal Ki Kheer, Samak Ki Kheer | Barnyard Millet Pudding

Barnyard millet pudding is a very healthy, creamy and rich delicacy made up of barnyard millet. Barnyard millet has many names in India. In Gujarati it is called Samo or Moriyo, in Marathi it is called bhagar or Vari cha Tandul, in Hindi it is called Mordhan or Sava ka chawal, Sama ke chawal, Vrat ke chawal, samak ke chawal. It's biological name is Echinochloa Colonum.

Barnyard millet is called rice but it is not cereal. It is a seed of wild grass ( Echinochloa Colonum) grows which frequently grows amongst the rice paddy. That is why this rice allowed to be in food for spiritual fasting days in hindu festivals and it also became popular as vrat ke chawal means fasting rice. It is healthy and nutritious rice which can be eaten during regular days also.

Today I am sharing sama ke chawal ki kheer ( barnyard millet pudding) prepared with milk, jaggery and few spices. It is also good baby food (for babies age above 8 months and for toddlers) as it has high protein and fibre content. Barnyard millet is the richest source of Iron of all the millets. To make it a meal for babies and toddlers, just use ground millet and skip using nuts. Follow the recipe as it is. I have prepared this pudding for my 1-year-old son many times. He likes it very much.

Let's see how to prepare it.
