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:
