Rava pongal is made with sooji (Semolina) and moong dal, cooked with pepper, jeera, ginger and green chilli. I had rava pongal in a relative’s house for the first time and loved it a lot. Though she had made it with vanaspati, it was really tasting good. I tried one or two times after that, but could not get a hold on the recipe. Yesterday when I was browsing, chef Damu’s rava pongal came to my eyes. So adapted the recipe and tried today. It turned out perfect. I know many of my readers wait for this rava pongal recipe as there is a prompt in Google search itself as “rava pongal rakskitchen”. What a shame, I am just now posting this simple recipe.
Serve hot with coconut chutney, best combination for rava pongal. You can top with ghee while serving if its too dry. Soft and flavorful rava pongal.
