Bombay rava or ravva or rawa or sooji, is a durum wheat product and a form of semolina. Rava is made by grinding husked wheat and is used in Indian cuisine to make savoury dishes such as rava dosa, rava idli, upma, khichdis. There are also sweet dishes made from it, take for example rava ladoo, and sooji halwa in North Indian cuisine which is also known as rava kesari/ kesari bath in South Indian cuisine.
Rava may be described as the residues of milled material, after the flour is ground in a flour mill (chakki). It is passed through a fine mesh till flour and rava are separated.
