           While fasting or upvas bhagar/samo rice khichdi is also eaten. Sabudana or Sago
           khichdi is preferred. Sometimes, bhagar is also made. During fast rather than just
           having khichdi you can make idli & have with groundnut/shengdanan chutney.
           Baking soda is also used in this recipe,you can check if baking soda is allowed
           or not during the fasting time & according you can make this idli.
