Cracked wheat pongal

A healthier alternative to the regular rice pongal that is usually made in almost all south-indian homes. We had this at a friends place for the first time and instantly fell in love with it. From then on it is more of cracked wheat pongal than rice pongal in our home.

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Warm with ghee

This is what u'll need....

Cracked wheat fine 3/4 cup
Moong dal 1/4 cup
Coarsely crushed pepper 1 tspn
Cumin seeds 1 tspn
Green chilli
Salt to taste
Ghee 2 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Heat a pan and fry the cracked wheat for a few minutes till you can smell its aroma. Transfer it to a cooker
  • Repeat the same with moong dal
  • Add ghee to the pan. When it warms up add crushed black pepper, jeera and slitted green chillies. Fry them about a minute and then transfer the contents to the cooker
  • Add water in the ratio (1:4::wheat+dal:water). Put required salt and cook till done
  • Serve hot with little ghee on top. Try coconut chutney on the side for a wonderful taste
