Pongal Celebrations 2012

<span class=

Wish you all a very happy Pongal :)

Hope you all had a great day as well with loads of pomp and joy.

There are many versions of chakkara pongal and I like all of them :) Basically I have a sweet tooth and pongal is one of my favorite sweet dish.

Mom's version is with milk completely and the version that we made this year is the authentic temple style with dhall. Lucky me, got to taste both today and enjoyed them throughly :)

Checkout for the milk version here and for pongal Kolambu here.

<span class=


Rice(New rice) - 1 cup
Moong dhall - 2 tblsp
Jaggery - 1 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 3 tblsp
Cashew nuts
Borneol ( Pacha Karpooram)



Wash rice and moong dhall together. Pressure cook them by adding 3 cups of water for 4 whistles.

Take jaggery and 1/2 cup of water in a pan and heat on low flame until the jaggery melts completely. Switch off the stove and pass through a sieve to remove dirt.

Now take a heavy bottom pan and transfer the jaggery liquid and the cooked rice and dhall to it. Add milk and stir well. Close the pan with a lid and cook until it becomes thick. Stir in equal intervals to avoid it getting stuck to the bottom of the pan.

Fry cashews and raisins in ghee and mix it to the pongal. Finally add a pinch of cardamom and pacha karpooram and stir once.

Delicious chakkara pongal is ready.

Enjoy it hot :)
