Barley Sweet Pongal

Have you ever tried making sweet pongal using barley, if not do try them soon friends, actually i tried them today for a trial,but finally i got hooked with this sweet pongal.. Barley along with yellow moongdal when cooked in condensed milk,omg wat a tasty and healthy sweet pongal, the result was extremely delicious but unfortunately since its a trial i just prepared them with a half cup of moongdal and half a cup of whole barley, even my hubby loved it..Definitely am gonna try again during weekend...Sending to Kurinji's Pongal Feast & to Celebrate Sweets-Sugarless Sweets guest hosted by Sara..

Barley Sweet Pongal

1/2cup Whole barley
1/2cup Yellow moongdal
1/2cup Sweetened condensed milk
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
1tbsp Ghee
Roasted cashewnuts

Pressure cook both barley and moongdal together with 3cups of water upto 3 whistles..Once the pressure released, add the sweetened condensed milk to the cooked barley-dal mixture along with the cooked water, cook everything in a vessel until the sweet pongal get thickens, finally add the cardamom powder, ghee and roasted cashewnuts to the pongal..

Enjoy warm..

Hi Priya-What an unusual barley dessert...never realized you can make such a delicious and sweet dessert out of barley, just by adding sweetened condensed milk. Cardamom powder, and the roasted cashews, certainly add a nice touch!
