Chana Dal pulav is also known as vrat ka pulav/Kichdi or Shagun Pulav as it is prepared without onion and garlic. Navratri is approaching and many fast during this time and samak/samai/little millet is widely used during that time. I have used sendha namak for this recipe but normal salt can also be used. Try this simple yet tasty pulav recipe during Navaratri.



  1. Wash and soak Chana Dal in hot water for an hour. Drain.
  2. Wash and soak millet for an hour. Drain
  3. In a small cooker, add oil and temper all the ingredients from jeera to chilli powder one after another.
  4. Add the drained dal and sauté for a minute on low heat.
  5. Add millet, salt, coconut milk and water. Give a good mix. Cook for 3 whistles. Let pressure settle.
  6. Our Shagun khichdi or pulav is ready.


  • Other millets like Barnyard, Kodo, Foxtail or Proso can be used for this recipe.
