OATS PONGAL

I have already talked enough about Oats.. I tried pongal using Oats…The best thing is my hubby could not find out its done using Oats!! It turned out in such a good way…Herez the recipie..

INGREDIENTS:

Oats – 1 cup

Moong dal – 1/4 cup

Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Peppercorns – 1 tsp

Asafoetida – small piece

Ginger – little

Cashews – 5 (optional)

Ghee – little

METHOD:

· Pressure cook oats and moong dal adding salt in enough water for four to five whistles. It can be in the ratio of 1:3.

· Meanwhile, grind asafoetida, peppercorns, cumin seeds, and ginger.

· Once pressure is released, heat the pan with little ghee, add the ground items and fry for some seconds. Then, add this seasoning to the Oats-Dal mixture. Mix well until the seasoning and Oats-Dal mixture combine together thoroughly.

· If needed, fry cashews in little ghee to golden brown and add to the mixture.

· The final consistency will be like a pudding. Serve hot with any side dish of your choice.
