Khara Pongal

Ingredients: (Serves 1):
1 Tbsp Oil
1 Tbsp Ghee
1/2 cup rice
3-4 cups water
2 Tbsp moong dal
2 Tbsp dessicated coconut
5-6 pepper corns
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 sprig curry leaves
1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1) Boil rice and moong dal with 3 cups of water until done.  I microwaved it for 15 minutes. Note pongal will be watery.
2) In a pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds and wait for it to splutter. Add pepper corns, cumin seeds, curry leaves and turmeric powder.
3) Add cooked rice and moong dal, dessicated coconut and stir. If you want it more watery add another cup of water and boil it for 5 minutes. Keep stirring once every minute or two.
4) Check for salt. Add ghee.
Serve with coriander-mint coconut chutney :)
