Cracked Wheat & Spinach Pongal – Your Recipe Rocks

Cracked Wheat Pongal

These days I’m using a lot of cracked wheat and grits in my cooking, by substituting it for rice.

Sometime back I made pongal using cracked wheat and moong daal, but it did not come out well.  From then on I was wondering how to get it right and finally I found the recipe for it in Sailu’s blog.  Added benefit, she has also included spinach in her broken wheat pongal recipe.  The recipe is very simple to follow and it came out very well.  Only change I made in the recipe was using frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach leaves. Thank you very much Sailu for such an healthy and tasty recipe.  Your recipe rocks!
