RAVA PONGAL - A DELICIOUS BREAKFAST

Rava Pongal

I always prepare pongal the usual way. I came acoss this Rava pongal from a cookbook and tried out for the first time. To my surprise it came out very well.
It hardly took 10 - 15mins to prepare this.
The taste was excellent and with coconut chutney it was perfect.

Love to share this with u all.





For this Pongal you need

 1 cup of Rava
1/2 cup of Moong Dal
1 cup of milk
3 cups of water
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
A pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp. of Pepper
1 tsp. of cumin
1 tsp. of chopped ginger
A spring of curry leaves
8 nos. of cashews
5 tsp. of ghee
5 tsp. of oil
Salt to taste


Preparation

Boil 3 cups of water in a vessel.

 In a pressure cooker, along with moong dal, add turmeric powder and asafoetida with sufficient water. Allow it for 4 - 5 whistles. (until the moong dal is cooked well).

In a pan , heat oil along with 2 tsp. of ghee.

Fry pepper, cumin, when they stop spluttering add, chopped ginger, cashews and curry leaves.

Now to this add the rava and saute it well.

Finally to the roasted rava add milk,boiling water , cooked moong dal  and salt .
Mix them well

Add the remaining 3 tsp. of ghee.  Cover and cook for 10 mins in low flame.

Delicious Rava Pongal is ready to taste.....
