Rava Kichadi (Semolina pudding)
This is one of the easiest dinner or breakfast recipe. I would usually used to make this when I am out of any recipes or want to make something very quick. This is a very handy recipes to have with us. It is similiar to upma. I still remember the first time I made kichadi in my hostel room it came out like a gummy paste but my roommates were just nice to me and ate it all.
I am entering this recipe to the Meeta’s Monthly Mingle – One-Dish Dinners this month. This is my first entry in any such event and hope to get some exposure with this.
Thanks to Pooja letting me know about this event.
