ABOUT Sweet Pongal RECIPE

Pongal a dish from Tamilnadu, made it in my way, main ingredients are rice and dal with tadka and served with lots of ghee ( basically khichdi). Sweet pongal is just like rice kheer but flavour of moong dal is there. Taste is awesome like heaven. Used date jaggery instead of normal jaggery, made it delicious. And of course served with ghee.
