Please have the patience to  scroll down to Page no. 10

Never thought this pongal will be in no way less than the other Pongals I have posted. Check here for
1. Venpongal
2. Rava Pongal

 It is so very healthy, so easy and very tasty too.

Samba Rava / Cracked wheat - 3/4 cup
Split mung dhal - 4 tbsps (soaked in hot water for 30 mts)
Water - 2 3/4 cups
Ghee - 3 tbsps
Cashews - 10
Pepper - 3/4 tsp & Jeera - 3/4 tsp, coarsely powdered
Finely chopped ginger - 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Salt to taste

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast
Prep time: 5 mts; Cooking time: 15 mts

Serves 2

In a pressure pan, add 1 tsp ghee, and roast the rava and  add the soaked  mung dhal/ we can first roast the moong  dhal and soak in hot water too, so that the dhal grains get roasted nicely. Then after roasting the rava, you can add the moong.

 Both well  roasted

Add the measured water, and salt and cook for 3 whistles.

This is how it looks after opening

Add some  ghee, add curry leaves, pepper-jeera powder and ginger

and add to the pongal.

Heat the remaining ghee in a pan, roast the cashews, and.....

add them too.

If you feel the consistency is too thick, you can add 1/2 cup hot water, and mix well.

Serve hot, with coconut thogayal and Vathakuzhambu.
