A 10 minutes tiffin . Man power 10 mins not the preparation time :)
Simple yet tasty tiffin.
Rice - 3/4 cup
Green Gram dal (Moong Dal) - 1/4 cup
Cumin -2 spoons
Pepper - 2 spoons (1 spoon full pepper, 1 spoon - coarsely crushed pepper)
Ghee(optional) - 2 spoons
Wash the rice and dal well.
Add 2 spoons of cumin 1 spoon of pepper and cook the mixture just as u cook rice.
But make sure you add extra water so that pongal comes out little mushy.
Once cooked, immediately add salt and mash the whole pongal well. It mashes well when its hot.
Fry the crushed pepper and cashews in a spoon of ghee and add it to hot pongal.
Based on choice, you can add more of Moong dal and lessen the quantity of rice. Like 1/2 : 1/2
Ghee added more will enhance the taste.
If not whole pepper, use pepper powder. But whole pepper will not be very hot so can be more.
If pepper powder is used, add less initially, check taste and add later if required.
