Rava Pongal Recipe

Rava Pongal is just like a normal ven pongal except for the fact that it is made with sooji/rava instead of rice.Rava Pongal can be served with sambar and coconut chutney. I never knew, rava can be used to make pongal until I watched a tv show recently. It looked very easy and quick. So planned to make Rava Pongal for dinner last night and it was a super hit. As ven pongal is my most favorite, no wonder in adding rava pongal as well to my list of favorites Smile
