I tried making a simple pongal but different from the usual pongal using cracked wheat instead of rice and masoor dal instead of split moongdal, else i prepared the same way we used to make pongal, this pongal was absolutely nutritious,healthy,guiltyfree as i didnt used ghee in this recipe at the same time delicious..Serve this pongal with spicy coconut chutney,both together tastes absolutely divine..Cracaked wheat and masoordal together turned out this pongal soo tasty,do try friends u will definitely love this combo, also since i used cracked wheat in this pongal, its suits perfectly to everyone even health conscious peoples,yep they can have this yummy pongal without any hesitation..Sending this delicious savoury pongal to Sanjeeta's WWC-Whole Wheat In Breakfast..
