How to make Rava kichadi with step by step images
- Heat a pan and dry roast rava/ sooji in medium flame for a minute. When done transfer it to a bowl. Slice onions thin and make a slit in green chilli.
- Now heat oil in a pan add mustard seeds, after it splutters add urad dal and channa dal, when it turns golden brown add curry leaves, sliced onion and green chilli. Saute well.
- Now add chopped carrot, beans, peas, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and saute all the veggies for a minute.
- When the veggies look sauteed add 3 cups water and allow the mixture to boil well so that the veggies get cooked. ( I covered it a lid and cooked)
- When all the veggies look cooked put the flame to low. Add sooji/ rava gradually with continuous stir so that it does not form any lumps. Now put a lid and cook the mixture in low flame for 5 minutes or until done.
- When done put off the flame and serve it hot with chutney and sambar.
