Directions for Milagu Ven Pongal Recipe Made With Figaro Olive Oil
To begin making the Ven Pongal Recipe; we will first cook the rice and lentils in the pressure cooker. Heat the cooker on medium heat, add a tablespoon of Figaro Pure Olive Oil.
Add the rice and dal, salt and 5 cups of water. Cover the pressure cooker, place the weight on and cook until you hear a whistle. After the first whistle, turn the heat to low and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. After 3 to 4 minutes, turn off the heat and allow the pressure to release naturally.
While the pressure is releasing, heat a tablespoon of pure olive in a small pan, add in the cashew nuts and roast on low heat until lightly browned. Next add in a teaspoon of cumin seeds, 2 teaspoons of pounded black pepper, a tablespoon of grated ginger, the roughly torn curry leaves. Turn off the heat and stir all the ingredients in the remaining heat.
Once the pressure has released from the cooker, stir the prepared seasoning and an additional 2 to 3 tablespoons of Pure Figaro Olive Oil into the rice. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined into the Ven Pongal.
