Servings 2


  • 3/4 cup Corn Rava
  • 1/2 cup Moong dal
  • 3 cup Water + 1/2 Cup Water
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Gingelly Oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seed
  • 1 tbsp Pepper corns
  • 1 tsp Pepper crushed
  • 1 Green Chillies chopped
  • 3 sprig Curry leaves
  • 1 inch Ginger chopped and crushed
  • Salt to taste


  • Wash corn rava and moong dal and pressure cook it for 5 - 6 whistles by adding 3 cups of water. Once done, switch off the flame and keep aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a small pan and add jeera followed by pepper corns, green chili, ginger, curry leaves and crushed pepper. Fry it for half a minute in a low flame, remove and keep aside.
  • Once the pressure gets released, remove corn - dal mixture and mash it well. Add the seasoning along with salt and mix evenly.
  • Boil 1/2 cup of water and add it to the pongal and mix it again. ( This helps the pongal to maintain its texture and doesn't get hard even after long time ).
  • Serve with Chutney and Sambhar.
