Rava Pongal

I am not a great fan of pongal.. came across this recipe while browsing for something else. Gave it a try today and am going to be a fan of pongal from today. It is lighter than the usual raw rice pongal. So here comes the recipe.


Rava/Sooji - 1 cup
Moong dal - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Pepper corn - 1 tsp
Jeera/Cumin - 1 tsp
Cashew broken - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - a spring
Asafoetida - a hing
Mustard seeds - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

1. Pressure cook the moong dal along with asafoetida and mash it well.
 2. Then in a pan, heat half the ghee, add the mustard seeds and curry leaves and allow to splutter. Then add the pepper corns, jeera and cashews and fry till they turn golden brown.
3. Then add the rava and fry it till a nice aroma comes. Add the mashed moong dal to the rava and mix it well.
4.Add 1.5 cups of water to the rava by stirring continuously without forming any lumps.Add salt to taste. Serve hot with chutney and sambar.
