Rava Kichidi / Sooji Kichidi

Though am not fond of Upma varieties, i like to prepare this often due to its high nutritional value. I add as much as vegetables as possible and make this as a colourful one. When accompanied by coconut chutney, Rava kichidi is too yummy

Items Required:

Combo of vegetables - 1 cup (Potato, Carrot, Green Peas, Beans) 
Onion and Tomato - 1
Green chilly - 1 or 2 as per taste. Slit into 2.
Curry leaves
Bansi Sooji - 2 cups
Water - 4 cups

For seasoning:

Mustard seeds
Urad dhal
Channa dhal

Pre-requisites before cooking:

1. Dry roast the Sooji if its not roasted before. If you are buying roasted sooji, then skip this step.
2. Clean and cut all the vegetables into small equal sized cubes.


Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds. Once they start to splutter, add the urad dhal and channa dhal. Once they become golden brown, add the jeera to it and immediately add the onion, green chilly and curry leaves. Once the onion becomes golden brown,  add the remaining vegetables except tomato. Finally add the tomato also and saute them well. Now add some water and boil the vegetables. Add salt and turmeric powder to it.

Once the vegetables are cooked nicely, add the Sooji little by little keeping the flame in low. Mix the sooji slowly making sure no lumps are formed. Once all the Sooji is mixed leave it low flame for few mins. 

Switch off the gas once kichidi is done. Serve hot with Coconut chutney.
