    Rava Pongal is a simple South Indian Breakfast recipe similar to Ven pongal, the only difference is rava is used instead of rice. Even bachelors out there, can try this simple recipe. You can even make Vegetable Rava Pongal by adding vegetables like carrot, beans, peas to make it more healthier. Let us learn how to prepare Rava Pongal today-

    How to make Rava Pongal/Sooji Pongal

    Ingredients needed

    Rava - 1 cup
    Moong dal (pasi paruppu) - 1/3 cup

    Ginger finely chopped - 1 tsp
    Whole black pepper - 1 tsp
    Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1 tsp
    Ghee - 1/4 cup
    Cashew nuts - 5-6
    Salt as required


    Roast rava in a tsp of ghee till it becomes hot to touch.(do not over roast it)

    Cook moong dal till soft but not mushy.

    Grind cumin seeds and pepper coarsely.


    1. Heat ghee in a pan, add finely chopped ginger, grounded pepper+ cumin seeds, cashew nuts and curry leaves.

    2. Saute for a few seconds, then add 2 cups of boiling water. Add salt to taste.

    3. Simmer the flames and then slowly add rava, stirring continuously.

    4. After the rava gets cooked, add the cooked moong dal and cook till all the water evaporates.

    Serve hot rava pongal with coconut chutney or quick sambar

    The easy sambar recipe that I have prepared for ven pongal also goes well with rava pongal.

    Note- If preferred, you can add 1 finely chopped green chilli in step 1.
