Mixed Vegetable Pongal - Version 2

Simple to make my today's post is inspired from Harini's post, though i have posted already vegetable pongal, this post is different from my version. As much as like usual venpongal, this mixed vegetable pongal takes very less time and quick to prepare. A complete, nutritious breakfast dish to enjoy with your favourite side dish or else with chutneys. Prepared quickly in pressure cooker, you can finish this fantastic dish easily with less efforts. Definitely a comforting meal, we just enjoyed this pongal with spicy coconut chutney.

Mixed Vegetable Pongal, One pot Vegetable pongal
Very flavourful, this pongal tastes super delicious when served warm. Yes this pongal calls for green chilly and ginger paste which is completely new for me, obviously i was very curious to try this dish as soon as possible. Finally i prepared this colourful dish few days back for our dinner, however this dish definitely a satisfying meal to feed anyone easily. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's delight - Quick breakfast as theme hence am posting this delicious pongal.
This is for Srivalli's Kid's Delight event, guest hosted by PJ themed on Quick / Innovative Breakfast.
