Rava semiya kichadi recipe

                    I love kichadi which is served in south indian restaurants. Kichadi with coconut chutney is yummy combination. It is very filling breakfast dish. In south india, for home function,they prefer to prepare or buy rava kitchadi as one of the dish. There are two version of kitchadi,one is just rava kitchadi and other is rava semiya kitchadi. I love the second one the most. Some used to prepare kitchadi very soft and slightly liquid consistency , but i like my kitchadi to be coarse ( Uthiri uthiri a). It took many attempts for me to get that consistency which i like.


Rava (Sooji )  - 1/2 cup
Semiya  -  1/2 cup
Oil - 7 tbsp
Mustard - 1 tbsp
Broken urad dhal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 2 tbsp
Hing - a pinch
Onion - 1 big
Green chilli - 4
Ginger - 1 1/2 " piece.
Tomato - 1 big
Vegetables - 1 cup (Carrot,Beans,Green peas)
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Water - 3 cup
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp


* Chop all vegetables into small pieces.
* Chop onion lengthwise.
* Chop tomato into small pieces.
* Chop ginger lengthwise into thin pieces.

1. Take thick wide pan and add 1/2 tbsp oil. Fry rava till it slightly turn brown. Transfer it to a bowl.In same pan,add 1/2 tbsp oil and fry semiya for 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
2. In a thick bottom pan, add 5 tbsp oil. Once it is hot,add mustard and wait till it splutter. Now add    urad dhal and fry till it turn slightly brown in color.
3. Now add curry leaves,green chilli and hing. Fry till curry leaves turn crunchy and green chilli         slightly  turns its color.Add chopped ginger to the oil and fry till the ginger is fried well .The taste of green chilli and ginger should mix with oil, which will give the taste to whole kichadi.
4. Add onion and fry till it turn translucent. Now add chopped tomato and add turmeric powder and    salt. Cook till the tomato is mushy and raw smell of all ingredient is fades away.
5. Add chopped vegetable and give a quick stir. Now add water and cover the pan with a lid.Cook till it boil. Once it starts to boil, using one hand stir the water in the pan and in other hand, add one scoop of rava and semiya mixture one at a time.Stir without taking hand.After adding all rava and semiya,the texture should be semi liquid.Cover and cook it in very slow flame.Add chopped coriander leaves.
(Check the taste and adjust salt according to it)
6.Cook for 5 minutes. once you see the liquid is absorbed, remove the lid and stir it. Add the remaining oil and stir slowly .Cook for 2 more minute in slow flame and switch off .Cover the lid and leave it.(The moisture in the pan,will cook the kichadi for some more minutes even after switching off the flame)

Hot yummy rava semiya kichadi is ready. Serve it with coconut chutney.


* Adding enormous amount of oil will make the kichadi pluffy and gets its coarse texture. At last stage ,we can also add ghee instead of oil.
* Boil water seperetely in another coil in the stove and add it if we feel water which is added for kichadi is not enough.
