Rava Pongal

This is a popular South Indian breakfast in restaurants and is quite simple to make.

Ingredients (Translation)

1 Cup fine roasted rava
1/3 cup Greengram Dal
4 Cups Water
Cashew nuts -5 to 6
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Pepper
3 to 4 tbsp Ghee
Ginger- a small piece cut finely
Few curry leaves
Salt to taste

Micro high greengram dal and 2 cups of water for 15 minutes, stirring every three minutes. Spread a little ghee on it so as to prevent spilling. Add the roasted rava to it and the rest of the water. Micro high for another three to four minutes, stirring once in between.

Add the crushed pepper, curry leaves, salt, roasted cashews, ghee, cumin seeds and ginger to it and mix well. Micro high for another minute. If the pongal is still watery, micro high again for a minute or two. Allow a standing time of 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve hot with chutney or sambar.
