About Sakkara Pongal My Way - Family Recipe

As I posted Peanut and Til Chikki,I also mentioned about the South Indian festival of Pongal which is celebrated at the same time signifying the Harvest festival.The main recipe of the South Indians is as per the festival name – Pongal.Pongal is taken from the word “Pongu” meaning boil referring to boiling fresh milk.So if there is milk,there is a pudding and this refers to the first step of boiling the milk in a new pot.So this is what people ask each other “Has the milk boiled”?Then harvested rice and lentils are put into the boiling milk and cooked till tender after which jaggery is added for taste.This was the traditional method of cooking Pongal.This recipe is not the traditional Pongal recipe but a mix of Sakkara Pongal and Akkaravadisal – The famous Iyengar Payasam.But unlike Akkaravadisal in which the rice and lentils are cooked to an almost mashed mass,this pudding has intact but milky and juicy rice and lentils.That is why the recipe is adapted to my liking and I am sharing the recipe with you all!
