What is bhagar or mordhan called in Bangalore?

What is “bhagar” (in marathi) or “mordhan “(in hindi) called in Bangalore or Kannada language. This is a food popularly consumed on fasts by maharastrians. Also suggest where can I get this in Bangalore. I tried to reach out several stores in Bangalore but they could not understand what I needed. Please help me.

No, I am not talking about sabudana or sago or tapioca balls, this looks like rawa/sooji, but used for fast

  1. I think its a type of rice.

  2. seeds of Echinochloa colona (a species of grass) are consumed during festival fasting days. In Gujarati is called “Samo” (સામો) or “Moriyo” (મોરિયો) in Marathi it is called ‘bhagar’ or “Vari cha Tandul” (वरी चा तांदुळ), in Hindi it is called “Mordhan” (मोरधन)or “Sava ka chawal”. Its not rice. Rice is seed of Oryza sativa.

  3. Vari Tandul In Tamil

  4. This is called little millet and known as Saame or Saave in Kannada

  5. I believe its bansi suji. I am facing same problem in bangalore.

Sama or Samvat Rice also commonly called as vrat ke chawal are tiny, white, round grains belonging to the millet family. It is glutten free grain and is a good health option during fasting days. It does not cook into separate grains like long grained rice. It is sticky and stays a bit soggy after cooking, somewhat like smaller versions of saboodana. Have them plain or with vrat ki kadhi during this fasting season.
