Aval Khaara Pongal (Poha Hot Pongal)

Pongal is a very famous South Indian Breakfast Delicacy made with Rice and moong dal and tempered with freshly ground spices with ghee. I replaced rice with Aval/Poha/Beaten rice and it was extraordinarily tasty. I started doing this as a regular breakfast and amazingly though it is a filling one, doesn't give the feeling of heaviness...

When the stuff becomes thick like a porridge switch off the stove.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The poha will absorb the water in no time.

In a sauteing pan heat the ghee and add all the items mentioned above under seasoning and transfer to the Pongal Pan.

Mix well and serve hot with chutney or sambhar.



 






 

 

Note:

The amount of water required varies according to the thickness of the Poha. So adjust the water accordingly.
