Rava Khicadi

Today I am going to share a breakfast recipe. As they always say  “Breakfast like a King”. Holds so true. I always prefer having a good breakfast .Its the first and the most important meal of the day.

Today the recipe i bring is of Rava Khicadi. Now this also is from the family of upma but it’s more smooth and has a melt in mouth texture. Filling and has all the nutrition of ghee,cashews,veggies.(Should be consumed in little proportions) if worried about the fat content. I feel its ok to cheat once in a while. 😀

Over to the recipe:

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
