I got this recipe from my best friend Lakshmy . Its a very easy & simple dish to do . So lets start :
1cup Ponni Rice
1/2cup Moong Dal
1tsp grated Ginger
1/2tsp Turmeric Powder
1tsp Pepper Powder
Dry roast the Dal in a low flame until you get the roasted smell of Dal .
Wash both the Rice & Dal & transfer to the pressure cooker .
Add all the ingredients & cook until you hear 3 whistle .
Allow it to cool down .
Open the lid & using the back of the spoon mash the Rice & Dal together .
If needed add some more water & milk .
(It will be good if you can mix some water & milk in a pan & keep near to the Rice , cos when the Pongal gets cold it will get hard , so you can add some water & milk mixture to the Pongal & make it back to its texture . )
For Garnish :
1/2tsp grated Ginger
1tsp Whole Black Pepper
In a pan heat some ghee & fry all the ingredients &Onion Vetha Kozhambu add to the Pongal .
Serve it hot with some Onion Vetha Kozhambu .
