Ramadan Nonbu Congee (Vegetarian)

Ramadan month means Fasting,which is compulsory for each and every Muslim who has reached the age above 7 yrs .There is a meal before dawn, which is called ‘Suhur’.In the evening immediately after the sunset, the Muslim should break his fast which is called ‘Ifthar’, When one of you breaks fast he should do so with some dates, And in our home with the dates we used to break fast with this Conjee and vadai / sundal /Bajji/Samosas and fruit juice. For this Ramadan month  and i just want to share with u all. Before i shared this recipe in Spice india online
              This Congee is very good for ur stomach.There are many varieties of preparing this Congee, We can prepare it with meat or more vegetables also. In my in-laws place they don't add meat, and im a vegetarian i don't prefer meat.This recipe i learned it from my mom in law. I miss my mom in law and my family in this Ramadan. Anyways me and my family wishing  u all Ramadan Kareem.
Raw rice – ¾ cup
Moong dhal – ¼ cup
Fenugreek seeds – 1 tsp
Chopped Onion – 3 tbsp
Chopped tomato – 1 ½ tbsp
