ABOUT Methi Pongal RECIPE

Venpongal is a combination of rice cooked with lentil and tempered with cumin and pepper. This pongal with the aroma of ghee is served with sambar and chutney. I decided to make it more flavourful by adding methi leaves – fenugreek leaves and the outcome was the tasty methi pongal.
