Ahh.. I am having this writers block, have no words to type.. so empty-headed.. Does it happen to anyone..? when u
I enjoyed the beautiful ride of going thro' Vardhini's space... and finally settled on one dish. My ever favorite Pongal. The reason I chose to make this dish is simply because its been really long time since we had this.. and hence used the hop as an excuse to eat this carbo food for dinner.. with the perfect sambar. Now lets get to recipe, my version..
Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Moong Dhal - 1/2 cup
Ginger - 1 inch [finely chopped]
Green Chillies - 2 no.
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - 1 stalk
Oil - 1tbsp
Salt - as needed
- Pressure cook basmati rice, moong dhal and finely chopped ginger with 4 cups of water.. and add sal and mash it nicely..
- Heat oil and splutter cumin seeds, green chillies and curry leaves.. and pour the seasoning into the pressure cooked mixture.
- Serve hot with Vada and Sambar :))
Tips & Tricks
1] Adjust the water according to your desired consistency. If the mixture gets dry after adding the seasoning, add some hot water to it..
2] One can add any kind of seasoning u want.. cashews, raisins.. The richer the better.. :))
