Pongal Celebration 2014 - Oats & Soy Milk Pongal

Wish all my readers a very happy Pongal :)

Pongal went on great with celebrations at both my homes with one delicious version with dal by my Mil (Check pongal celebration 2012 post) and the rich version with milk by my mom (Check pongal post 2010 and 2011 here)

This year there was one additional recipe which I made. Came up with a healthy version with Oats and Soy Milk :) It came out really well and we all enjoyed :) Please excuse the pic, since my cam took a break and has gone for service, this is a quick version of pic with my iphone :)

Ingredients:

Oats - 3/4 cup
Soy milk - 400 ml
Jaggery - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 1 tblsp
Dried figs - 3
Almonds - 5
Cashews - 5

Method:

Chop the nuts into small pieces and fry them in ghee and keep it aside. 

Cut the dried figs into small pieces. Take it in a microwave safe bowl and add few drops of water to it and microwave for 30 seconds. This will make the figs soft. 

Take a tsp of ghee in a pan and fry the oats too for few minutes and keep it aside. 

Take the soy milk in a thick bottomed vessel and allow it boil in low flame until it boils and raises. 

Reduce the flame and add the oats to the soy milk. Now simmer the flame and allow the oats to get completely cooked. Once the oats gets cooked and thickens, add the jaggery to it and mix well. In a few minutes the entire jaggery will melt and blend well with the oats. Finally add the nuts and the figs to the pongal and mix well. 

Serve hot and enjoy :) 

Wish you a very happy pongal again :)
