Sakkarai Pongal

This a festive sweet dish that mom usually makes at home for Pongal or Vinayak Chaturthi. I always used to think that making sweet pongal was very tough. But when I saw my mother-in-law make it for Ganesh Chaturthi last time, i couldnt believe how easy it can be. And guess what she did not make just a bowl but a whole big pot. She just makes things so simple and sweet. My cooooolllll m-i-l.

This is what u'll need....

Rice 1/2 cup
Moong Dal 1/3 cup
Milk 2.5 cups
Ghee 5-7 spoons
Jaggery 150 gm
Cardamom 3

Here is the stir....
  • Wash rice and dal together and set aside
  • Pour milk in cooker and boil for 2-3 mins
  • Add the rice and dal mixture and pressure cook upto 4-5 whistles
  • Pour some ghee in a kadhai and pour the above cooked mixture. Stir for 2 mins and add powdered elaichi to it
  • Add jaggery and cook the mixture for 5 mins more after the jaggery has melted
  • Fry kaju and kismis in ghee and add to above
