Notes

As I have added ginger have not used asafoetida!feel free to use if you need. I like pongal to be some what gooey and not very thick,you can adjust the water and milk content accordingly. If you are not adding milk its good but should be consumed hot or when warm. Same way you can do this pongal with any single millet without combining.
