This is my latest favourite recipe. I love pongal a lot. I make it quite often too. Since hubby and me dont eat rice these days, i used thinai for making this and it was like super hit. I never missed rice in this. It tasted really yummy.
I served this with my all time favourite pumpkin sambar. it was so delicious. You can have it with coconut chutney or tomato chutney as well.
