SAKKARAI PONGAL

  Sakkarai Pongal - This is a traditional sweet of TamilNadu and the most important recipe prepared during festivals. Here comes my version of this sweet dessert :)


For this Dessert you need

1 cup of raw rice
1/4 cup of Moong dal
2 cups of Jaggery (abjust the quantity acc. to ur taste)
1/2 tsp. of cardamom powder
A pinch of salt
1 cup of milk
Few nos. of cashews (roast them in ghee)
2 tbsp. of Ghee

Preparation

In a pan, fry the moong dal slightly, until a nice aroma comes from it.

Pressure cook rice and moong dal with milk  and 2 cups of water for 4 - 5 whistles.

Once the pressure releases. Mash it well and keep it aside.

Meanwhile roast cashews in ghee.

In a heavy bottomed pan,melt the jaggery by adding one cup of water and strain it .

Now add the mashed rice to this jaggery and mix well. Cook in low flame.

Add cardamom, pinch of salt and  ghee . Allow it to cook for 5 mins.

Finally garnish it with Cashews.

Tasty sakkarai pongal is ready to be served...........


Serve it hot (or) cold and enjoy :-)

NOTE : If the pongal is too thick, add some warm milk until you get the desired consistency
