Rava Kichidi

Rava kichidi is another special breakfast recipe in South India. I think kichidi is made in the restaurant as a evening Tiffin. When we were in Coimbatore, my mom used to get kichidi and carrot juice in the evening... Heart warming food... Here I am gonna share the recipe!!!


1 cup semolina/ Rava
2" ginger chopped
1 onion chopped
1 cup Mixed vegetable (Ur choice)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp channa and Urad dhal
3 green chillies
curry leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp lemon(optional)
2 cups water
Curry leaves
Cashew Nuts
Salt to taste


Roast rava in pan for few minutes. The color changes to light golden.. thats when u have to remove and transfer to a plate. Let it cool down. U can also find roasted rava in Indian stores...

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, channa and urad dhal, cumin, Cashew nuts( if u are using roasted cashew nuts u can add it before serving) and curry leaves. Once the mustard starts popping, add chopped ginger fry till the aroma oozes out. Add onion & green chillies and fry till onions become translucent. Add the vegetables ( I usually use the ready made frozen vegetables. If u are using fresh vegetables, chop them into small pieces) and saute for couple of minutes. Add water and salt. Cover the pan, Allow the water to boil. Once the water starts boiling add Rava in a slow and steady pace. Keep stirring continuously until all the lumps vanishes. It will take about 10 mts to absorb the water. Finally add Ghee and mix well. Add lemon juice and remove from heat. Mix well. Garnish with Coriander leaves.

Serve hot with Coconut chutney.
