I and amma make ponagl using broken wheat it’s easier than the rice pongal. We started including broken wheat in our diet from past 7 to 8 years ago; coz rice is not always good. We have rice only in the noon, so when we have to make pongal or bisibelebath for breakfast we use broken wheat and there is no difference between rice pongal and broken wheat pongal. I also thought of introducing Indian breakfast menu specifically south Indian breakfast, so I thought will start with this healthy recipe. So let’s get to the recipe.
