  1. Toast the oats for about 5 minutes, on low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil. Once the oats is ready, sprinkle the water over it and keep stirring.
  3. Keep adding the water until the oats are nicely cooked.
  4. In a saucepan, melt the jaggery with 1-2 tablespoons of water. Once the jaggery is completely melted, add the cooked oats and moong dal and mix well.
  5. Allow it to simmer for 10-12 minutes or until most of the excess water is absorbed and you are left with a nice ooey gooey mixture. Remove from the flame and keep aside.
  6. Heat the ghee in a small pan, add the cashews and raisins and sauté for a couple of minutes.
  7. Garnish the prepared pongal with the sautéed nuts and raisins.
  8. Serve hot.
