                    Recently Ven Pongal has got added to my favorite food recipe...And the best thing is I find it very easy to prepare, any one newer to kitchen can find this recipe very simple, filling and tasty too.


Raw rice - 3/4 cup
Moong dal - 1/4 cup
Cashews and raisins - 1 tbsp.
Jeera Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
Curry leaves  - few
Oil or ghee - 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste


Wash rice and Dal.
For 3/4 cup rice + 1/4 cup dal = 1 cup, we need to add 2 and 1/2 cup water.
Cook the Rice and Moong dal along with required salt for 4 to 5 whistle in pressure cooker.
Mash the rice and dal well, keep it aside.
Temper in ghee / oil with curry leaves, jeera pepper powder, cashews n raisins (optional) and mix it to the cooked rice.
Now the Ven Pongal can be served with sambar or chutney or either.
