Method
Measure the required amount of moong dal and add it to a pan. Dry roast the moong dal until nice aroma arises and switch off the stove.

Add the roasted moong dal to the pressure cooker, add 1 ½ cup of water  to the pressure cooker.

Pressure cook for 3-4 whistles and switch off the stove. Wait for the steam to release all by itself.

Meanwhile dry roast the rava/sooji until nice aroma arises and switch off the stove.

Open the pressure cooker and transfer the cooked dal to a kadai/pan and switch on the stove.

Add required salt, 2 cups of water to the kadai.

Let it come to rolling boil. Reduce the flame and add the roasted rava slowly with one hand and stir with the other hand to avoid forming any lumps.

Cover and cook the rava with dal along with 1 tsp of ghee for about 5-8 mins or until well done. Keep stirring in between to avoid getting burnt and switch off the stove.

Heat ghee + oil [3 tbsp] in a pan, add green chillies, ginger and fry for about 30-40 seconds, add cashew nuts, black pepper, cumin, asafoetida/perungayam and curry leaves. Fry until the curry leaves turn crispy and switch off the stove.

Now pour the tempering over the Pongal and mix well.
