Ven Pongal is one of the traditional breakfast recipes which has high nutritious value. Raw rice and moong dal are mixed in a measured proportion for this ven pongal and the seasonings are added along with ghee. Here I have given you the hotel style Ven Pongal recipe. Here we take equal proportions of raw rice and moong dal. It tastes yummy and is served with Coconut chutney and Tiffin sambhar. However, the best traditional side dish for pongal is the Kathirikai Gotsu which is served in marriages. Many hotels use dalda for tadka because it gives a good taste and flavor.
