Ok.. let me come to my post.. Since this month is auspiciuois for lord krishna/ vishnu, being the first day of this month I wanted to make something for Lord, something that veryone say is his favorite... Aval and venpongal... so Combined both and made Aval Pongal . To be frank not much difference in taste from Usual Venpongal,thats prepared with rice. But this was quicker to prepare.

Pasi paruppu(Moong dhal)-1/4 cup
