Pongal Rotti....Make over to Left over pongal

Print Friendly and PDF

Happy Makara Shankranti Wishes to all ...!!!
I hope every one have enjoyed the Pongal festival with all the festive food.As this is the first festival in the year all are very enthusiastic and would be looking forward to celebrate the festival.Traditionally in our house we prepare sweet/sakkara pongal and paal pongal and we also do mixed vegetable and lentils sambar to go along with paal pongal.The tradition of making sweet and khara pongal on this festival every year is quite common all over the country and especially in south India.Pongal gets hardened after some time and I would not prefer having left over pongal later in the day.Whenever there was a left over pongal at home my mom used to do a quick make over to it and completely transforms the hard looking left over pongal into hot,crispy and yummy rotti's for dinner.These pongal rotti's taste similar to akki rotti and they are very easy to make and taste best when you have it piping hot right off from the pan and on to the plate.Hope you guys try it with left over pongal and enjoy these rotti's like me.
Ingredients:


1 cup left over khara pongal

1/3 cup
Rice flour
1 big onion,finely chopped

3 tbsp finely chopped coriander

1 tsp cumin seeds/jeera

1/2 tsp green chili paste

salt to taste



Method:
  • Mash pongal slightly if it is necessary.
  • Add rice flour,finely chopped onions,chopped coriander,cumin seeds,green chili paste and salt to taste and mix properly.Add little water if required to bind it into a rotti dough.
  • Take a big lemon sized ball and pat the rotti with your hands on a greased pan/bandli into a thin layer.pour oil all over the rotti and cover it with lid and keep it on medium flame and roast it until crispy and brown.
Serve it hot with any chutney/pickle/thokku and masala dahi.

Note:
You can even add carrot or finely chopped spinach or grated cucumber or grated coconut or grated bottle gourd or finely chopped spring onions to the above dough.
