Rava - 2 cups

Onions - 1 big (cut lengthwise)

Tomatoes - 1 medium (chopped)

Green Chillies - 2 (slit lengthwise into 2)

Carrot, Beans, Peas chopped - 1/2 cup

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

split urid dal - 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste

Curry Leaves - a few

Oil - 5 tbsp

Slightly roast the rava in a dry pan and set aside.
In another pan, heat the oil, splutter mustard seeds, then add the urid dal, curry leaves and fry for a while.
Then add onions and green chillies/red chillies and fry for a while.
To this, add tomatoes and fry for a while.
Then, add the vegetables and saute for a couple of minutes.
Pour about 3-4 cups of water to this.
Add salt, turmeric powder and mix well and allow the water to boil.
When the water is boiling and the vegetables are almost cooked, add in the rava slowly and keep stirring simultaneously so as to not form lumps and cook till done. (Till the water all evaporates). I
f you add too much water, the kichadi might become sticky.

Very healthy light tiffin. Can have any pickle, hot chutneys or coconut chutneys as side dish with this upma.
