Cracked Wheat Sweet Pongal

After trying out sweet pongal with whole barley,here comes my next healthy version of sweet pongal with cracked wheat..Cracket wheat are naturally low in fat and absolutely free of saturated fats, cholestreol and this help to maintain a consistent weight loss, they are rich in iron;magnesium,vitamin E,vitamin B and even in antioxicants..Cracked wheat gets cook very quick and easily, to make cracked wheat, the whole raw wheat kernels are crushed down as smaller bits including the bran and germ, thats y this cracked wheat have more health benefits than the whole grain..Am sending this delicious sweet pongal to Kurinji's Pongal Feast..
Check my buddies Srivalli,PJ,PriyaVaasu,Reva,Jay,Monika,Ayeesha&Azeema as we guys are running blogging marathon for this whole month..

Cracked Wheat Sweet Pongal


1cup Cracked wheat (washed)
1/2cup Yellow moongdal(washed)
1cup Milk
3/4cup Sugar
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
1tbsp Ghee
Roasted cashewnuts
Few saffron strands

Pressure cook the cracked wheat and moongdal together with 3cups of water upto 3 whistles..Once the pressure released, add the milk,saffron strands and sugar to the cooked cracked wheat-dal mixture and 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..
