Kichadi 2

This kichadi is my favorite. I make this for myself whenever my husband goes out of town. Since I add moong dhall in this kichadi, it will be very filling along with vegetables.  Here goes the recipe

  1. Coarse Sooji/rava - 1 cup
  2. Roasted Vermicelli - 2 tbsp
  3. Moong dhall - 4 tbsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  6. Ginger -  a small piece
  7. Mixed vegetables - 1/4 cup (chopped green peas, chopped carrots, potato)
  8. Onion - 1 (thinly sliced)
  9. Tomato - 1 (chopped)
  10. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  11. Oil - 2 tsp
  12. ghee - 1 tsp (optional)
  13. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  14. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  15. Cashews - 1 tsp
  16. Coriander/curry leaves -  for garnishing
Pressure cook moong dhall and keep it aside. In the mean time, dry roast rava and vermicelli and keep it aside.  Now take a think bottomed tawa, heat oil and ghee, splutter mustard seeds, urad dhall, cashews to golden brown.  Add curry leaves, ginger and green chillies to it and saute. Now add thinly sliced onion and saute till it becomes brown.  Now add the chopped mixed vegetables and tomato and saute for 3 to 5 mintues or till it becomes tender.  Now add required amount of water to it (i added 2  3/4 cups of water for 1 cup rava + 2 tbsp vermicelli ;  water quantity can vary according to the quality of rava). When the water starts to boil, add the cooked moong dhall, turmeric powder and required amount of salt and let it boil for a minute. Now add the roasted rava and vermicelli to it and mix everything well. Add coriander leaves. Reduce the flame and cover the kichadi with a lid and let it for a minute. Enjoy it with coconut chutney.
