Recipe Cuisine:Indian|Recipe Category:Breakfast
Prep Time:2 mins |Cook time:20 mins|Serves:| Author: Raksanand

Wheat rava pongal is a healthy alternative to regular venpongal made using rice or the ravapongal.

Ingredients

Wheat rava 1 cup

Moong dal 3 tbsp

Salt As needed

Ghee - to top

To temper

Ghee 1 tbsp

Black pepper 1 1/2 tsp

Cumin seeds 1 tsp, heaped

Green chilli 2

Ginger, very finely chopped 1 tbsp

Curry leaves 1 sprig

Asafoetida – 1/8 tsp

Cashew nuts 8 (Optional)

Method

1. Heat a small pressure cooker with ghee. Temper with pepper, wait for it to start crackle, add cumin, slit green chilli, ginger, curry leaves and asafoetida (add cashew if adding). Stir in medium flame for 30 seconds. 

2. Add moong dal and roast for a minute.

3. Add wheat rava, required salt and 3 & 1/2 to 4 cups water (I added 4 cups). 

4. Bring to boil and cook for 3 whistles in medium flame.

Notes

I have skipped cashew nuts since VJ doesn’t like it. 

The water quantity depends on the texture you want. 

You can add 1/4 tsp turmeric too if you like.

Serve hot with little ghee drizzled on top! I had with coconut chutney and sambar.
