Cracked wheat upma was prominent dish in our menu... after some point we got bored....I tried many recipes like pulao in cracked wheat , cracked wheat lemon flavour and what not!!!! Finally I made this cracked wheat pongal..voila... it was so tasty.. this is an inspired dish from my fellow blogger site esp Sailu's...


Ingredients:

1 cup cracked wheat
1/2 cup moong dal
1/2 cup spinach
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
1" ginger
cashewnuts
1 tbsp ghee and oil
curry leaves


Preparation:
Heat ghee and oil in a cooker. Add pepper, cumin & grated ginger and fry for few minutes.. the kitchen will filled with pongal aroma!!!!..Add cashew nuts, saute till golden brown. Add moong dal, cracked wheat and spinach with 4 cups of water. Add salt. Cover and cook for two whistles. Remove from heat. Let it cool. Open the cooker, serve hot with coconut chutney!!!

Pongal is something like our Kichdi in Bihar & other Northern Parts of India. I've tasted pongal, thanks to my friends.... But not the one that u've prepared. The look is good & I can also feel how u felt when u tasted it. So I'm sure it must be good. Would surely try some day.

Love,
Ash.........
