Just to share with you...

Instead of making plain rava or semiya/vermicelli if we make that as kichadi it will taste good. We are taking some veggies too.This will be a good food for kids.



Beans, carrot, green peas ,cauliflower,cabbage,potato .No hard and fast rule for the proportions and the type of vegetables. Whatever you have take those and cut into small pieces as you cut for poriyals.


1. Onion small -1

2. Green chillies - 5 to 6

3. Tomato small size- 1

4. Mustard - 1/4 tsp

5. Oil -3 tsp

6. curry leaves as needed

7. Turmeric powder -1/2 tsp

8. Rava or Vermicilli - 1cup


1. Cut vegetables into fine pieces (one cup).

2. Take 1 cup of rawa/vermicelli and lightly roast without oil and fry for few minutes. You can skip this step too if you are in hurry.

3. Pour 3 teaspoons of oil in a fry pan and add mustard seeds. When it splatters, add curry leaves and chopped green chillies ,onions and fry till it is done.

4.Now add the vegetables, turmeric powder , salt and fry them until they turn soft .Now add 2 cups of water and when it begins to boil add rava /vermicilli and keep stirring till all the water is absorbed and it becomes thick (fully cooked).

Hi dhana, tried kichadi today without adding tomato..it came good.. Also, in my home we used to prepare kichadi with both rava and vermicilli.. if vermicilli 1 cup then rava 1/2 cup..The combination is good..Cooking vermicilli seperately and rava with all vegs and finally adding vermicilli to rava..
