RAVA PONGAL | RAVA PONGAL RECIPE

SOOJI PONGAL

Rava- Pongal
Rava pongal , if i remember correctly, i am making this for the second time. Few years back, in my in laws place i made this once. In fact, i tried it for the first time as someone told me that they made rava pongal for breakfast.  After coming home, out of my own idea i made this  Rava pongal. Those days i never know that i can get recipes from internet Open-mouthed smileBut it turned out quite well, after that i totally forgot about that. Suddenly yesterday when i was thinking what to make for breakfast, Rava Pongal came to mind and i started to make it keeping camera in one hand to post the recipe for you all.I loved the taste and texture of the Rava pongal.

Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time:20 minutes Serves:3
INGREDIENTS:
SOOJI | RAVA 1/2 CUP
YELLOW MOONG DAL(PASI PARUPPU) 1/2 CUP(COOKED)
GHEE 2 TBLSP
BLACK PEPPER 1/4 TSP
CUMIN SEEDS 1/4 TSP
CASHEW NUTS FEW
CURRY LEAVES FEW
GINGER (GRATED) 1/4 TSP
WATER* 3 CUPS
Rava -pongal
METHOD:
  • Roast the rava finely in a pan without getting it burnt.
Rava pongal step 1 rava pongal step 2
  • Pressure cook the moong dal till it becomes mushy.
  • In a pan, add ghee and add black whole pepper, ginger  and cashew nuts.
  • Fry in a medium flame till the cashew nuts turn golden brown. Add the cumin seeds now and immediately add water. Do not allow the cumin to roast for a long time as it will spoil the taste.
Rava pongal step 3 Rava pongal step 4
  • Add 3 cups of water and bring it to a nice boil. Add salt.
  • Once the water starts boiling, add the roasted rava to this. Keep it in a low medium flame. Once it starts cooking add the cooked moong dal. Mix well and let it sit for a while till the pongal consistency reaches.
Rava pongal step 6 Rava pongal step 8
  • Garnish with curry leaves and if you want add a tsp of ghee to this you can add now.
Rava Pongal step 7
Rava -Pongal          *The water measurement is for cooking the rava not included for cooking moong dal.
NOTES:
  1. You can roast the moong dal for 2 minutes and then pressure cook if you wish.
  2. Never roast the cumin seeds for  a long time as it will give a medicinal smell.
  3. I added whole black pepper, you can even coarsely crush and add too.
I have kept my coffee tumbler empty. It is just used as a prop for the photo.

  4. I made another version of it. The dal was roasted and powdered. Once the rava was roasted, both were pressure cooked. It was quite nice. I thought it needed a few more changes. This is another method of cooking it and I will give it a try.
