Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. This is a simple breakfast food that takes very less time to prepare. Since rava/sooji cooks very fast it is normally made when unexpected guests arrive. There is an even more simpler version that I have posted here that does not use vegetables except for onion. I prefer this version because it is more on the watery side and is loaded with vegetables. Feel free to add veggies of choice and I sometimes even add garbanzo. Off to the recipe.

When water starts boiling add the rava stirring continuously. Close and cook until rava is done. Fluff it up and serve with chutney of choice.
A tsp of ghee can be added at the end to enhance the flavor.
