Ingredients:  for making Rice
  • Rice 1 1/4 cups
  • Moong Dal 1/2 cup
  • Ginger 1 – 2 inch piece
  • Black Peppercorns 1 tbsp
  • Cumin Seeds 1 tbsp

  For Tammarind and ginger chutney :
  •  Tammarind-small lemon size(soaked in little hot water to soften)
  •  ginger-half quantity in tamarind
  • Jaggery  -1 tsp
  • Green chillies or red chillies fried-(3-4)
  • salt
Temporing  to rice :
Mustard -1/2 tsp
Split urad dal 1 tsp
chana daal-1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 1/2 tsp
Pepper corn-1/2 tsp
Ginger chopped -1 tsp
Ghee for temporing

Red chillies
Temporing chutney :
Mustard -1/2 tsp
Split urad dal 1 tsp
chana daal-1 tsp
Cumin seeds  1/2 tsp
Curry leaves few
Red chillies 1 cut pieces

Method :

 Wash rice and lentils and boil them together in a pressure cooker generally with twice the amount of water as them. Add a pinch of turmeric and salt and cook.

In a pan, heat the oil. Add mustard seeds and other seasoning wait till they pop.

 Add curry leaves, chillies and crushed/uncrushed peppers as the mustard seeds are popping.

 Peppercorns (miriyalyu) are very important ingridient in this particular dish. It gives that unique taste and flavor. I like whole peppercorns instead of crushed because its my wish whether to eat or leave them

 Add this popu/tadka to the rice and mix well. Thats it its ready.

 Serve hot with pickle or cocunut chutney.Generally i do with this ginger-tammarind chutney will go..

This is dry(rice podi ga untundi)method of kattu pongali unlike hot pongal(wet).
