rava kichadi recipe

rava kichadi is more like khichdi and one that is made with sooji. so you can also call it sooji khichdi. rava kichadi is a south indian breakfast preparation.

i do add some veggies in it to give some texture and nutrition. the veggies that can be added to this dish are capsicum (shimla mirch or bell pepper), french beans, green peas (matar) and carrots. but you can skip veggies and make it without veggies also.

this time when i made rava kichadi for blog, i did not added cashews. but some fried or roasted cashews can be added for garnish. usually i add fried cashews as they give good taste to it. few similar recipes on blog are:
