Moong dhall -1/4 cup

Jaggery - 1 cup

METHOD

Dry roast moong dhall until it changes it colour.

Combine moong dhall , foxtail millet and add 3 cups of water and pressure cook for 4 whistles.


Dissolve jaggery and stain it. Make thick  jaggery syrup. Add cardamon powder.

Add the cooked mixture in to that and mix well.

Heat ghee and roast cashews , add to chakkara pongal.
