Tomato rava khicidi is a good variation for rava upma. As like me, many dont like eating upma for breakfast so this serves as a good option then. The tanginess  of tomato when added to rava gives a superb taste. The colour of the dish would be so appealing. I have added chilli powder to the recipe for the colour and this can be replaced with green chilli. I have prepared it with onion tomato chutney for dinner and yes I liked it a lot. My baby too had it without complaints so I guess this will become one of my repeated recipes at home… 🙂 🙂
