Oats Pongal

Oats Pongal :

Preparation time : 15 minutes
Cooking time : 15 minutes
Serves : 2
1 cup = 250 ml


1/2 cup uncooked oats 
1/2 cup moong dal/ husked and split green gram( boiled)

Method :

1. In a wide pan, dry roast the oats till it becomes fragrant. 

Note: Do not brown the oats. Keep continuously stirring to avoid burning and uniform roasting of oats.

2. Add 2 cups of water and let the oats cook for 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Now add the cooked moong dal and salt. 
TIP: You can add a teaspoon of oil along the sides of the pan. 
Note: I cooked the moong dal with 1 cup of water and 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric.

4. Let them cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Switch off.
5. In a small pan, add the oil+ghee . 
6. Now add the ginger, peppercorns, green chillies, cuminseeds and curry leaves. It will sizzle. Switch off.

7. Pour this into the prepared oat-moongdal and mix well.
