Wheat rava pongal is a healthy alternative to regular venpongal made using rice or the ravapongal.
Wheat rava 1 cup
Moong dal 3 tbsp
Salt As needed
Ghee - to top
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)
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.
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.
