Rava kichadi is one of my top most favourites. I can live with it. I always love all the recipes with rava/ sooji/ semolina. Upma, dosa, kichadi, pongal…everything 😊. Though Aj and Vj are not big fans, they can eat once in a while. I too make rarely because its greasy and I prefer wheat rava upma for health reasons. I make this along with other tiffin items if friends/ relatives visit. The soft texture and the ghee smell in the kichadi tastes and smells out of this world. Also the yellow colour and vegetables we add makes it colourful.
I have updated with video. In the video, I have used 1 & 1/2 cups of vegetables – tomato, carrot, beans, green peas, potato, capsicum. I have added coriander leaves for extra flavour. Also used 5 cups water instead of 4 cups. 4 cups water will give firmer result while with 5 cups water, you will get more loose, softer results.
While adding 5 cups water, it needs more ghee + oil than when we use 4 cups water. If you reduce the ghee or oil, your kichadi will be sticky.
If you do not want to use this much ghee or oil, please skip making this, otherwise you cannot do justice to the recipe. Best when had hot/ warm.
