After the steam releases, add about 1 cup of water and mash the rice and dhal really well.
In a kadai heat oil and ghee together, add green chillies and ginger and sauté until the raw smell goes off. Now add cashews and fry them until golden brown. Add the black pepper, cumin seeds, curry leaves and sauté for 20 sec. Now add the cooked pongal and mix them really well. Make sure the stove is in low flame and keep it for about 2 min and switch it off.
