Cracked Wheat & Masoordal Pongal

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..

Cracked Wheat & Masoordal Pongal

1cup Cracked wheat
1/2cup Masoordal
1tsp Ginger (grated)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Oil
Few peppercorns
1tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Few curryleaves
Cashew nuts

Pressure cook the cracked wheat,masoor dal,ginger,salt and turmeric powder with three cups of water upto 3 whistles,if u want bit mushy u can add more water..once the steam gets released, heat enough oil in a pan, fry the pepper corns,cumin seeds, curryleaves, cashew nuts and asafoetida powder until brown and add immediately to the cooked cracked wheat-dal mixture,cook in simmer for few seconds,put off the stove..

Serve with spicy coconut chutney..
