Samba / Broken wheat Pongal

Pongal is a breakfast item in most of the South Indian houses. Its usually prepared with rice and moong dal .Here’s a different and maybe a little healthier version of pongal. I used samba instead of rice. I am saying little healthier since you need to add a little extra ghee. Pongal without ghee is not Pongal!

Samba — 2 cups
Moong dal — 3/4 cup
Green chili — 2
Whole pepper — 6-7
Cumin seeds — 1/2 teaspoon
Mustard seed — 1/2 teaspoon
Crushed pepper cumin pwd — 1trespoon
Asafetida —- 1/2 teaspoon
Cashews —- 1tablespoon
Ghee —- 4 tablespoon
Salt —– 1 1/2 teaspoon.
Water —- 4 1/2 cups
