Rava Kichadi is another easy and simple south Indian breakfast.You can easily make them even for a large group of people in a jiffy.Such a colorful breakfast with all the veggies that makes it so very tempting while serving.I usually prefer serving kichadi for Upma for they add nce color and glam to your dining table.
The texture of rava is so soft with the addition of ghee and just melts in your mouth.Rava kichadi tastes good with sambar and coconut chutney ,some like them with onion raitha too which I haven’t tried till now.Make this yummy, healthy, colorful breakfast and serve it with your favorite chutney variety.
