Check out this version of sweet pongal in the Oriya Style. I had made this as part of an Oriyan meal few weeks back.

Ingredients - 

Rice 1/2 cup
Moong Dal 1/4 cup
Salt couple of pinches
Sugar 1 Tbsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Nutmeg Powder a couple pinches
Seasoning (Ghee 2 tsp, Cinnamon 2 - 1 inch sticks, Cardamom 1, Raisins 2 Tbsp, Cashews 1 Tbsp)

Meetha Khechudi

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add ghee, and the rest of the seasoning ingredients.

After they are fried well, add the moong dal and rice and roast for a few minutes.

I cooked them in the pressure cooker and so I transferred the contents into a pressure cooker adding about 1 1/2 cups of water. Optionally it can be cooked on the stovetop.

Remove from the cooker, mix well and serve.
