Suganya said...

I remember seeing this in Trupti's blog. I assume it is same as Sago.

Dear Kajal
Thanks so much for the wondeful comments on my blog. Loved the Moraiyo recipe. You have such a precise way of cooking dishes.
Your gas stove looks so clean and don't see food or oil spluttered all over nothing. Hey I wrote in my last comment about buying your sketches, I understand your feelings, it's not for sale, but hey may be you can teach me right!
I have been to Gandhinagar umpteen times. May be you could give me your email so I can chat with you directly rather than going through this comment section.

Jyothi said...

Hi Kajal, dish looks yummy dear, but as Asha, what is the meaning of moriya in telugu. Do you have any idea? Thanks for sharing.

ushaprashanth said...

Hi kajal!

Cynthia said...

This dish looks so healthy and filling Kajal. The step by step pics are very helpful.

Kajal said...

Hi Asha,

Thanks for nice comment but this is not sago this is known as “samo” and “Moraiya” in Gijarati, or “Vari Tandoolachi khichdi” in Marthi. I don’t know other name but this is ready made pack as we buy Bengal gram flour or other flour pack. You see in trupti blog she post this ready made pack and i also give link of her blog. It is look like rava or suji also same taste as upma but not suji.:)

Kajal said...

Hi Suganya,

Thanks for lovely words. But my dear this is not sago something different as I say to asha. May I wish you can understand what this is.:)

Kajal said...

Hi Roopa,

Thanks my I say to read and hope you understand.:)

Kajal said...

Hi Archana,
Thanks for kind words. Some time I also add groundnut powder but when I don’t have too much time to crush then I add groundnut directly.

Kajal said...

Samo is not the same as sago. Sago is white, samo is yellowish.

Mumsa Indica said...

sabudana is starch pearls made from sago palm.
Moraiyo is a type of cereal (Pannisetum) one of the many found in India, it is called little millet.It has more starch. It is different from Ragi (scientifically called Elusine coracana) or nachli in regional language, it is very high in proteins, esp methionine, the amino acid that lacks in veg foods.
The recipe is good and traditional.
