Pongal is a delicious South Indian rice and lentil dish often made in most homes. Instead of rice I used Oats to make it healthy. You can have it with Sambar or Chutney.
- 2 Teaspoons Butter/Ghee
- 1 Teaspoon Jeera
- 1 Teaspoon Mustard Seed
- 2 Teaspoons Chopped Garlic
- 2 Chopped Green Chilies
- 1 Chopped Onion
- 1 Chopped Tomato
- 1/2 Cup Oats
- 1/2 Cup Moong Dal
- 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Coriander Powder

In a pressure cooker, heat 2 tablespoons of butter or ghee.
Add 1 teaspoon Jeera, 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, and finely chopped garlic. Sauté until the rawness goes away.
Add 2 chopped green chilies and 1 chopped onion.
Once the onions are translucent, add 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 cup green moong dal. Sauté everything for 5 minutes.
Add 1 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon coriander powder, 1 teaspoon pepper powder, and 1 teaspoon garam masala. Mix well.
Add 1 tomato and 4 cups of water. Bring it to a boil and close the lid.
Pressure cook up to 4 whistles.
To make a smooth consistency mash a little bit with a masher.
