brown rice pongal

Another thing that I tried today, since it was Makar sankranti is pongal total south indian style! The recipe-

Brown rice pongal

1/2 cup brown rice
1/4 cup moong dal

Roast the moong dal and when color changes, add the cleaned and washed brown rice. add one cup water and pressure cook for one whistle. let cooker stand till cool. by this time it is half cooked.

1 litre milk
bring it to a boil, add the pressure cooked rice and dal. cook till mixture thickens and it gets a darker color with the thickening of milk. take it off from gas.

Now all you need is-
some cashews and raisins, added some chironji too
1 tbsp ghee
jaggery as per taste

Split and crush cashews, fry in some ghee, wash the raisins. add to pongal along with jaggery. heat and add the remaining ghee. your pongal is ready!
