Bagar is a rice replacement for upwas days in North India . And as summer NAVRATRI has started i thought of posting this recipe. I learned this during my recent trip to India from our Mangla mami. She is a great cook and i just love talking to her about food. Bagar is available here as "Samo Seeds" and is also called"Vrat Ke Chawal".
Bagar - 1/4 cup Fresh Tomato - 1 1/2 cup, chopped Potato - 1/2 cup, 1/4 inch cubes Green Chilli - 2 , chopped fine Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup chopped Water - 1 1/2 cup Jeera - 1/2 tsp Salt to taste (I use sendha namak) Ghee - 2 tsp
Heat ghee and add jeera and green chilli .
When jeera turns golden , add chopped tomato.
Cook till the tomato turns mushy then add potato and bagar
