BM #68 Day 19 -
Continuing the pattern of Bajra, Ragi, Jowar and Little Millet, today it is the turn for a recipe with Jowar. In a previous post, I had mentioned how I had got this cracked jowar during my recent visit to India. I have put that cracked jowar/jonna rava to use in this recipe.
This is a simple adaptation of the traditional Ven Pongal substituting the rice with Cracked Jowar. Folks at home need some tangy gravy as an accompaniment with Ven Pongal. So I made Tomato Gojju.
Jowar Rava 3/4 cup
Moong Dal 1/4 cup
Salt, Turmeric, Pepper, Ginger and Cashews as needed
Hing / Asafotida 2 pinches
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Ghee 1 tsp
Method Of Preparation -
In a heated pressure pan add ghee. Add the Cumin seeds, ginger, cashews, asafotida and pepper.
Add the moong dal and fry for a few minutes and then the Jowar rava. Fry for a few more minutes.
Add in adequate salt and turmeric. Add about 3 cups of water and cook for up to 4 hisses. Remove upon cooling. Mix well and serve it hot with an accompaniment of your preference.
