Falahari moraiya Khichdi and kadhi

Falahari Moraiya Khichdi is a traditional dish from India that is typically made during fasting days or for people who observe a strict vegetarian diet. It is made with Moraiya (also known as Sama ke Chawal), a type of small, thin, and translucent variety of millet, along with a variety of vegetables and spices.

  3. Add the mixed vegetables, turmeric powder, and red chili powder. Stir well and sauté for a few minutes.
  4. Drain the soaked moraiya and add it to the pan. Stir well and add 2 cups of water.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the Moraiya and vegetables are cooked through.
  6. Serve hot with kadhi or yogurt.
