By: Admin
Region: Karnataka
Dish: Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks
Servings: 4
Time to Prepare: 20 Mins


-1/2 cup green gram dal or hesarubele
-1 cup beaten rice or avalakki (medium thick)
-2 tbsp ghee
-3/4 cup jaggery (adjust as per your taste)
-1/4 cup grated coconut
-1/2 cup milk
-1 tbsp cashews
-1 tbsp raisins
-A pinch of salt (optional)
-A pinch of cardamom powder
-A pinch of dry ginger powder


-Slightly roast the moong dal or green gram dal until you get a nice aroma. Do not over roast it, roast only for few minutes.

-In a pressure cooker take the roasted dal. Rinse it well.

-Add in a cup of water and cook by making 2 whistles.

-Meanwhile take jaggery in a bowl, add in 1/2 cup of hot water and keep it aside. Jaggery will get dissolved and we will be using this jaggery water later.

-Take beaten rice in another bowl, rinse it well and keep it aside. No need to soak since we have used medium thick beaten rice. If you are using thick beaten rice then soak it for 5 minutes and then rinse it.

-When the pressure subsides, open the lid and make sure that the dal is cooked well.

-Add in rinsed beaten rice cooked daal and rice mixture. Add in jaggery syrup by filtering it using a strainer.

-Add in jaggery water. Filter it using a strainer to remove the impurities.

-Also add in 1/4 cup of grated coconut. Mix well and keep it for boiling. Optionally you can add a pinch of salt.

-Add in 1/2 cup of milk and give a quick mix.

-When it starts boiling add in cardamom powder and dry ginger powder. Also add in required water and adjust the consistency. Please note avalakki pongal will become thick once it is cool. So keep this in mind and adjust the consisency accordingly.

-Parallely heat ghee in a small frying pan. Fry cashews and raisins. Pour this to the boiling sweet pongal, give a quick mix and switch off the stove.
