Aromatic Rava Kichadi

Aromatic Rava Kichadi..this is the name I gave as it is different from the normal one we make. It holds good for both breakfast or dinner. I had served with Coconut Chutney. We easily get bored with the dishes and always want a change in the menu. So I always hunt for new recipes..try out some additions, deletions to the original recipe and make my own version.Thank god everything turned out well till now !!!!
