ABOUT Mixed Dal Pongal RECIPE

This is my comfort food when I have to cook all for myself as it is hasslefree and at the same time healthy and nutritious. I enjoy with fryums and a sprinkle of nalla karam podi. It is very easy and a simple recipe. A good substitute to khichdi, it also goes well with pickles, any homemade chutney, papad or chips.
