Bagar Ki Kichidi


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



  1.  Heat  ghee and add jeera and green chilli .
  2. When jeera turns golden , add chopped tomato.
  3. Cook till the tomato turns mushy then add potato and bagar
  4. Add water , cover and cook till bagar is fluffy.
  5. Now add more water  to make khichidi soupy.
  6. Sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve hot.
  7. Serve with a  dollop of curd  or lemon wedge.
