rava kichadiCoconut Rava Kichadi is one of my favorite South Indian recipe. This can be served either for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Rava Kichadi is the combination of rava, vegetables and ghee. This recipe is not only healthy but also an easy recipe to make. The kichadi will be very tasty if you be a little open-handed in adding ghee and oil to it. It tastes great along with sambhar and coconut chutney.
