We also call it as KICHADI.


Rawa(sooji) - 1 cup
Carrot, shelled peas, beans and
cucumber - 1 cup
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp.
Gram dhal- 1/4 tsp.
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Green chillies - 3
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - few
Oil - 2 tablespoons
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Water - 2 cups


Cut all the vegetables finely. Slit green chillies into two.
(Onions are optional. I didn't use it).

In a kadai, dry roast rawa till a nice aroma comes. Keep aside.

In the same kadai, heat oil, ghee and add mustard seeds. When it splutters, put in urad dhal, gram dhal, and hing. When they turn golden brown, add turmeric powder, chillies, curry leaves and beans, fry for a minute and then add all other vegetables. Saute again for a minute. Now add water and salt. When it starts boiling gently add rawa and quickly stir so that no lumps are formed. Cover with a lid till cooked. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
