The Nutty Yogi Barnyard Millet or ‘Samvat ke Chawal’ is a widely used millet. These are tiny, white, round grains belonging to the millet family. In India, cereal grains are not consumed during fasts. Hence, samvat is a popular ingredient during Navratras.
The Nutty Yogi Barnyard Millet is a fair source of protein, which is highly digestible and is an excellent source of dietary fibre with good amounts of soluble and insoluble fractions. The carbohydrate content is low and slowly digestible.
It makes up for a very easy substitute for rice and is excellent in khichdis and lemon rice!
