Vrat ke chawal ki tikki or cutlet recipe | Samvat rice cutlet recipe

Sama ke chawal also known as Vrat ke chawal or samvat rice or Mordhan or Moraiyo or Swang ke chawal or vari or varai. Actually this is not rice, it is from millet family. In English it is called Barnyard millet. This can be consumed on fasting and it is gluten free grain.

This swang ke chawal ki tikki is deep fried, so it is very filling snack.

It is crispy from the outside while soft from the inside. First the millet is cooked itself and then mixed with potato and chilies with salt and pepper. Potato is added as a binding agent in it.

This vrat ke chawal is most frequently used during the Hindu vrat or upvaas like Navratri, Ekadasi, Maha Shivratri, Jaya Parvati vrat or Krishna Janmashtami. I do make many different farali dishes using this grain like Pulao, khichdi, kheer, idli, dhokla. Other recipes I will be posting soon.
