Samba Wheat is better than the ordinary wheat as it is rich in fibre. Instead of making Vennpongal with rice, we could try doing Pongal with samba godhumai or oats which is much healthier than the traditional pongal made with rice. We don't need to add more ghee also. Samba Wheat takes a little more time than rawa or oats. Try this yummy Samba Godhumai(Dhalia) Pongal dish and share your suggestions.
