Two types of Pongal are prepared during Sankranthi. Posting a Ven pongal or spicy rice preparation which is a one pot meal. It is accompanied either by a chutney or with curd. I prefer mine with store bought Onion pakoda.
- 200 gms rice
- 200 gms moong dal
- 1 tsp pepper corns
- 1 tbsp jeera
5tbsps ghee/clarified butter
- 3 sprigs curry leaves
A pinch of haldi /turmeric
- 2tbsps of ghee to drizzle when done.
Wash the moong dal and rice. Heat the ghee. Add the jeera and pepper corns. After they splutter add 3 sprigs of curry leaves. Toss. Add the washed moong dal, rice salt, haldi and water enough to cook it. Cook till done. Drizzle with more ghee and serve hot.
