Barnyard millet (Sanwa millet) is tiny, white, round grains belonging to the millet family. It is the germ of a grass which commonly grows between the paddy fields as it requires damp or waterlogged soil. It is a weed of sorts. Sanwa millet is one of the food eaten during the fasting days in India. The golden rule to follow on Ekadashi is to avoid pulses and grains, i.e. rice, dals and other grains are not allowed on the Ekadashi day as even if a slight piece of grain is ingested, even accidentally, will result in breaking Ekadashi fast, but Samvat ke chawal is only exceptional rice which is allowed in Ekadashi food as Sanwa rice is just a 'seed' and not a grain.
