Rawa Pongal

#Rawapongal - #Sooji #Pongal : Basically pongal is done with rice and green gram dhal. This rawa pongal is just a variation of it.
Here rawa ( sooji ) is used instead of rice. I haven't done this in recent times. I completely forgot this recipe. But when I went to my daughters' place she made this tiffin for breakfast. It was so tasty and very easy to make. I also made two days back and here it is.
