Bulgar Wheat Sweet Pongal ~ Goduma Rava Chakkara Pongali

Bulgar wheat Sweet Pongal top view

When I considered Bulgar wheat as one of the options in 5 whole grains prasadam for Saddula Bathukamma, I immediately thought of doing sweet dish with it. But rather than making it regular Kesari with wheat rava, I wanted to use mung dal in this recipe similar to rice sweet pongal recipe. I was not sure about the outcome but when I tasted it, I decided to make this sweet pongal instead of rava kesari from now on. Adding Mung dal gave different flavor and taste and it was so Yummmm!!! It is FAT FREE as no ghee or oil are added in this recipe.



  1. Bulgar Wheat /  Cracked Wheat  – 1/2 Cup
  2. Mung Dal – 2 Tbsp
  3. Sugar – 1/2 Cup
  4. Water – 1-1/4 Cups
  5. Cardamom Powder – 1/4 tsp


  • Wash Bulgar wheat and Mung dal.
  • In a vessel add 1¼ cup of water and add the Bulgar wheat and Mung Dal. 
  • Cook it over medium heat until it absorbs all the water and well cooked.
  • Add sugar and mix well. Stir it for every 3 minutes until the mixtures thickens.
  • Add Cardamom powder and mix well. 
  • Switch off the stove and offer as naivedyam.
