Khichdi banaya - Pongal & Coconut Chutney for Breakfast

pic via TamilSpider

On Sundays breakfast is a delayed affair. This morning I  got up late and when the hunger pangs became too much to ignore, quickly made Pongal and Coconut chutney coz it’s quick, easy, nutritious and yummy!  And before I could take a picture, it got all over, hence i had to surf and post a pic thats not mine.  


Pongal's a festival dish but made all around the year too…

You need: 2 tbsp Ghee, 15 pcs of Cashew nuts, 3 Green Chillies, a handful of Curry Leaves, ½ tsp Cumin Seeds, 1/4 tsp Turmeric, 10-12 Pepper corns, a little asafetida, Salt to taste, 1 cup Rice, ½ cup Mung Bean, 2 ½ cup Water

Cooking it: Heat the ghee in the pressure cooker, add the cumin and cashew nuts, when they begin to brown, add the peppercorn, curry leaves, green chillies and asafoetida. Add the Mung Bean, Rice, turmeric, Salt and Water. Cook till you hear 2 whistles. Let it stand for a few minutes and then serve hot with coconut chutney.
