Rava Pongal Recipe

Rava Pongal

Rava/ Sooji- 2 cups
Moongdal- 1/2 cup
Pepper corns- 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tbsp
Cashew nuts- 20 Nos
Curry leaves- few
Salt to taste
Ghee- 4 tbsp
Oil- 4 tbsp
Water- 3 cups
Sooji Pongal

Wash and soak Moongdal in water for 30 mins and pressure cook dal until mushy.
Roast rava until aroma rises and set aside. Heat oil and ghee in a pan, add cashew nuts, fry until cashew nuts turn golden brown, drain and set aside. In the same hot oil add cumin seeds, pepper corns and curry leaves, fry for few seconds. Add cooked dal and water to the pan( be cautious since water splutters). Add required salt and bring it to boil. When the dal mixture starts to boil slowly add the roasted rava and keep stirring continuously so no lumps are formed. Add cashew nuts to the rava pongal and cook until rava pongal is soft and semi dry.
( if the rava pongal is too dry increase the amount of oil accordingly).
Serve hot with coconut chutney and sambar.
