Spinach Wheat Rava (rawa) Pongal

I try to include green vegetables at least 3-4 times a week in one form or other. I do all kind of dishes with Spinach. I wanted to do something quick and make one dish that includes all for one of the lazy weekday dinner. Thinking of Pongal ( Like I mentioned in my pongal post.. Pongal is not my dish) initially I was hesitating. In the end my laziness won me over. I tried Spinach Wheat Rawa Pongal. I didn't regret for a min for the choice I made
