Rava Pongal

-Submitted by Dahlia on 18th Jan 2015

(Ravva Pongal)


Rava Pongal is a tasty variation to the traditional Ven Pongal. This recipe is perfect for pongal lovers who are looking for an alternative to rice.  This goes very well with some coconut chutney and sambhar.

The recipe that I have shared below is a very simple and quick one. You just need one pot from start to finish. It is perfect to make for breakfast or dinner even during busy weekdays.
