Foxtail Millet & Wheat Rava Pongal

Pongal with sambar makes a wonderful breakfast, if its made with whole grains without ghee, just think about how this healthy pongal will tastes. Recently i tried making the usual ven pongal with a healthy twist, yep i combined both foxtail millet and wheat rava pongal for our dinner few days back. Trust me this healthy and wholesome pongal served along with spicy coconut chutney makes a super filling,guilt free breakfast or dinner. Both foxtail millet and wheat rava makes an incredible pair for making this healthy pongal.

I have already tried my hands making wheat rava and foxtail millet in pongal separately,actually this combo was in my mind since a long, but finally i prepared making them for our dinner.Everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly this healthy and wholesome pongal.Sending this pongal to my own event Healthy Diet-Cooking with Wholegrains and to my own event CWS-Yellow moongdal hosted by Manju.


1cup Foxtail Millet
1/2cup Wheat rava
1/2cup Yellow Moongdal
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1tsp Grated Ginger
1/4cup Oil
1/2tsp Cumins seeds
10-15nos Peppercorns
10nos Cashew nuts
Salt
Few Curry leaves

Wash  the foxtail mille,wheat rava and yellow moongdal together.

Take them in pressure cooker with four cups of water, ginger,asafoetida powder and salt, cook upto 3 hisses.

Meanwhile heat the ghee oil, fry the cumin seeds, peppercorns,cashew nuts and curry leaves until they turn brown.

Once the pressure is released, add the tempered spices, cashews directly to the pressure cooker, toss them well until everything get well mixed.

Serve hot with sambar or coconut chutney.
