BM #127 Week 3 Day 2 - 

In continuation of the A-Z series, for the letter 'W', I chose to go with Wheat Rava and made this Wheat Rava Sweet Pongal. I made sure that this coincides with Navratri and so I was able to offer this as an Offering to Goddess Durga.

The platter feature Mango Methi Dal, Tomato Rasam, Barnyard Millet, Color Peppers Curry, Pan Fried Papad and Wheat Rava Sweet Pongal

Ingredients - 

Wheat Rava 1 cup
Moong Dal 1/4 Cup
Milk 1/2 cup
Jaggery 1 cup
Chopped Nuts and Raisins 4-5 Tbsp
Ghee 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash moong dal and wheat rava and pressure cook them together with half a cup of milk and 4 cups of water 
for about 2-3 whistles or 7 minutes in Instant Pot. Sprinkle a few drops of ghee to avoid overflow.

Meanwhile, in a heated pan, add 1 cup of grated jaggery and about 2-3 tablespoons of water and let the jaggery melt. Strain out any impurities and set aside.

In a heated stock pot, add ghee and fry the nuts and raisins. Remove the fried nuts and raisins onto a different plate.

In the remaining ghee transfer the cooked wheat rava-moong dal mixture, add the melted jaggery and mix well.

Allow the mixture to cook through and keep stirring occasionally to avoid getting the mixture burnt.

When the whole thing comes together as a single mass, add some more ghee and the fried nuts and raisins and mix well.

Remove from heat and it is ready to be served. This is a perfect recipe to make for Naivedyam.


Preparation Time 30 minutes
Makes 3-4 cups
