Rava Kichidi / Mixed Vegetable Uppma !!


Upma or Uppuma is a common & easiest breakfast in South India (Tamil Cuisine). This recipe is mostly cooked with roasted semolina, various seasonings and/or vegetables are often added.  This can be substitute with oats,broken rice, wheat rava, quinoa etc.,

So here is one of my favourite recipe rava kichidi, with lots of veggies & balanced seasoning. Great recipe for  breakfast / dinner of your choice. Kichidi is perfect with coconut chutney & sambar.
