Step 1

Fry moong dhal in a vessel.

Step 2

Wash the rice and moong dhal and soak it in water for half an hour.

Step 3

For 2 cups of rice and moong dhal, add 3 cups of water and cook in a cooker.

Step 4

When it gets done, add salt to it and mix it well.

Step 5

In a pan, heat ghee and saute cumin seeds, pepper, kaaya podi curry leaves and cashew nuts.

Step 6

Add it to cooked rice and keep it in stove for 2 mins and mix it well.

Step 7

:- Pottu kadalai(roasted chenna) chutney and Coconut chutney are good combinations for Ven Pongal.


This recipe is prepared widely in Karanata as well. Adding green chilles will give a better taste. A pinch of turmeric adds a beautiful color to the preparation. Pongal tastes great with cocunut chutney and raita as well.
