Rava Pongal

Rava Pongal

This is different from usual rice pongal but the taste is really yummy! It is very simple and easy to prepare.Kids love the taste and it is a very gud breakfast for them also.


1 cup rava
1/4 cup moong dhal
3 tbsp ghee
1/2 tsp black pepper corns
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 sprig curry leaves
salt to taste


Pressure cook the moong dhal with enough water and keep aside.

    Heat the ghee in a  khadai and add the black pepper,cumin seeds,curry leaves ,cashewnuts and fry them.

Add the rava and fry it along with the fried mixtures.No need to deep fry, just fry for 1 min and switchoff the stove.

Add the moong dhal into the fried rava and mix it well and add salt at this stage,remember that all these can be done only the stove is in off ,else the lumps will be occured while mixing.

Add ghee and switch on the stove and keep it in medium flame.Stir it.After few mins,it will not stick on the kadai and comes it out nicely.At this stage switch off the stove and tranfer it into a serving bowl.Serve it hot with coconut chutney.I love to have it simply with sugar.
