Millet pongal, with samai / little millet with step by step pictures. Healthier way by swapping rice. You will never know it's not rice.
Samai / Little millet - ½ cup
Moong dal / Payatham paruppu - 2 tblsp
Ghee - As needed
Black whole pepper
Heat a small pressure cooker with ghee.
First pop pepper, add cumin seeds the other ingredients together (green chilli slit) and give a stir.
Add ginger, moong dal and fry for a minute. Wash samai, add it into the cooker. Mix well.
Add 2 cups water, salt and mix well.
Bring to boil and close the cooker, give 4 whistles in medium flame.
Once done, let the pressure release by itself. Open and mash well.
For ½ cup samai, 2 cups water is perfect, so do not hesitate to add. If its too dry, mix ⅛ cup hot water and mix.
