lapsi pongal recipe, Dalia pongal,
Broken wheat pongal is a healthy and easy South Indian breakfast dish prepared with samba variety  wheat.  It is known as Dalia in Hindi. I make this during vrat days. This dish is bachelor friendly and a healthy substitute for rice as well.
NOTE:  Vegans can avoid ghee and use any plant based oil.

  • Broken wheat - 1/2 cup 
  • Moong dal - 1/2 cup 
  • Black pepper - 1/8 tsp. 
  • Cumin seeds - 1/8 tsp. 
  • Grated ginger - 1 tsp 
  • Asafoetida 
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Salt - to taste 
  • Curry leaves 
To temper:
  • Oil - 1 tablespoon 
  • Ghee - 1 tablespoon 
  • Pepper-jeera powder - 2 tsp

  • Heat a pan and dry roast broken wheat until it becomes white.
  • Dry roast moong dal until hot.
  • Wash both dal and broken wheat, drain and keep aside.
  • Take a vessel, add water and all ingredients, mix well and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles.
  • When the pressure is released, take out the vessel, add pepper-jeera powder to the pongal. Heat oil and ghee and pour on top of it. Mix well. Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
