Kichadi..Rava upma is one of my favorite breakfast recipe. Making more interesting, added colorful vegetables with ghee roasted cashews and it is popularly called as rava Kichadi in South India. This is very tasty, healthy and also very famous South Indian breakfast recipe. I added beans, carrots, sweet corn in this Kichadi. We can also add various veggies as per our taste. In tempering, I added fried peanuts to make more tastier. If we buy roasted rava, we need not fry the rava long time. Otherwise we have to roast well to avoid stickiness. The best side dish for Kichadi is coconut chutney and sambar. Or we can use only sambar for side dish. Let us see how to prepare the tasty, healthy, colorful rava Kichadi or veg rava kesari bath.
