Now, it is one of my favorite meals, both to prepare and eat, for it is so comforting and keeps one fuller for a long time.

Broken wheat Pongal is a warm hearty meal made with Broken wheat and split mung. Broken wheat, also known as Dalia or cracked wheat, is a variety of whole wheat rich in protein and fiber. It is of high nutritional value and is hence used in making different kinds of recipes.

The vegan recipe of broken wheat Pongal is simple, requiring fewer ingredients. Moreover, the meal is wholesome, comforting, and takes about 20 minutes to prepare, so one could easily prepare this even on a busy weekday. Continue reading to know how to make this yummy and quick meal.
