Cornmeal Khichadi

Whenever i get bored of our usual rava upma, i wont even hesitate a minute to make rava khichadi with roasted rava along with plenty of veggies. Some may call this khichadi as khaarabath, for a change this time, i quickly and simply prepared this wonderful looking cornmeal khichadi for our yesterday dinner. You can add any sort of veggies to make this delicious khichadi or else cook just with onions and tomatoes. Serve this colourful khichadi with thick coconut chutney, i can have it anytime.

An excellent,quick and easy breezy breakfast or dinner to enjoy without any hesitation.My mom used to make this khichadi with garlic cloves instead of ginger garlic paste and temper it with whole spices like clove,cinnamon stick,bayleaf and fennel seeds instead of usual tempering spices, this will give definitely a fabulous masala flavour to this simple khichadi.


1cup Yellow cornmeal
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
3nos Garlic cloves (chopped)
2cups Mixed Veggies (carrots,greenpeas,capsicum & zucchini )
Few curry leaves
1no Whole spices (bayleaf,clove,cinnamon stick)
1/2tsp Fennel seeds
Oil
Salt
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Ghee

Dry roast the yellow cornmeal until they get warm. Heat enough oil,fry the whole spices,fennel seeds until they turns brown.

Add the chopped garlic cloves,curryleaves and fry for few seconds, add the chopped onions,chopped tomatoes and cook until the onions turns transculent.

Add the mixed veggies immediately,add enough salt,turmeric powder and cook everything until the veggies gets half cooked.

Add two cups of water to the cooking veggies, bring to boil. Once the water starts boiling, add the roasted cornmeal to the boiling water, stir continously and cook until everything gets well cooked.

Finally add the ghee and put off the stove. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
