Venn Pongal
Venn Pongal is a traditional SouthIndian breakfast dish. I love to do VenPongal as it is very easy and quick. We should be generous in using
ghee for Pongal. The flavour of ghee with pepper is the unique taste of pongal. It is the traditional neivedhyam in any temple. The shine and
smell of ghee in pongal will tempt everyone to have more.
Preparation Time 10 mins
Cooking Time (Cumin Seeds) 20 mins
Servings 4
Raw Rice 3/4 Cup
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) 1 teaspoon
Moong dal 1/4 cup
Salt To taste
Cashew Nuts 10
Ghee/Oil 3 tablespoon
Whole black pepper 1 teaspoon

Pepper Powder 1 teaspoon
1. Heat a heavy bottomed pan, add moong dal
2. Roast the moongdhal in the dry pan till it turns golden brown color
3. Add the fried moongdal with the raw rice for rinsing.
4. Cook the raw rice along with the moongdhal and salt in the pressure cooker by adding 1/2 up extra water than normal rice cooking
and for 2 extra wistles in the cooker than normal. This will make the rice smashed.
5. Heat the pan, add 1 teaspoon on ghee and add the broken cashews and fry till they turn golden brown color. Take this out and keep
it aside in a plate.
