Pongal and oats makes a good combo as both are meant to be mushy. I make this oats pongal for lunch and have it with sambar for a filling meal… If you have chutney also for side dish,then you will never complain anything,just make it,eat hot,its really good!  One day saw the Saffola oats advertisement in the magazine about this Oats pongal and got tempted and made instantly and had for lunch.

  53. Thanks a lot Raji. First I tried your Jangiri and it came out so well. Then today I tried Oats pongal. It was awesome.

    One change... I cooked Oats, moongdal, (a portion of jeera, ginger and pepper) in the Pressure cooker. The aroma from all the spices percolated into the pongal and it was really good. I used the remaining portion of the spices for tempering. I also added very little cashew.

    1. Havenot tried in pressure cooker before. Do you mean all together - oats, dal ? Together may not be a good idea. First season and cook the moong dal, open the cooker and add oats and cook again. That could help.
