Here’s how to cook Gujarati Moriyo Ki Recipe – Sama Khichdi in under 20 minutes using minimal ingredients.

Ever heard of Moriyo? I hadn’t, until I was introduced to it by my friends mother-in-law. Moriyo is often cooked by Guajarati’s on days they are fasting. It is also known as Banyard Millet, Sama Chawal, Samo, and Farali. These little beads have a fantastic texture when cooked, are relatively quick-cooking because of their small size. Additionally, it’s naturally gluten-free. It is a wild seed and not a grain.

Oil of choice, cumin seeds, curry leaves, Serrano peppers, potato, water, bell peppers, moriyo/samo seeds, salt, ground turmeric, and cilantro leaves. Moriyo/samo seeds are easily available on amazon or Indian grocery stores.
