Plain Rawa Kichidi

Vegetable Rawa Kichidi

The difference between rawa upma and kichidi I feel is adding some extra spice and mainly using tomatoes...You can always make plain rawa kichidi or with any vegetables...both tastes good.

Rawa/sooji coarse - 2 cups
Water - 5 - 6 cups
Onion - 1 medium
Tomatoes - 2 or 3
Green Chillies - 3 slit long(
Ginger garlic paste - 3/4 tbsp(
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Curry leaves - few
Cilantro - few leaves
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/4 tsp
Cardamom - 2 - optional
Cinnamon - 1 small piece- optional
Clove - 3 - optional
Salt as needed
Oil - 2 tbsp
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Vegetables - 1 cup ( optional- chopped and half cooked)

Take a kadai and dry roast rawa in medium flame for 3 - 4 minutes( or until light pink/brown)...keep aside.
In the same kadai heat oil and add cardamom,clove,cinnamon, urad dhal , mustard seeds and curry leaves...when they splutter up add green chillies and chopped onions( for upma you can always cut into lengthwise)....saute till light brown...next add ginger garlic paste( or ginger garlic chopped) and saute for a minute..next add chopped tomatoes...saute to fry them well until they are mashed and pulpy....next add the vegetables if using them and saute for 3 - 4 minutes...next add water, salt and chilli powder....allow it to boil very well( the bubbles for up well on top)...reduce flame and add rawa slowly stirring in between so no lumps are formed....cover and cook for another 4 - 5 minutes...add ghee and chopped cilantro leaves...can also fry cashew and mix.
