Wish you all Happy Pongal
Hope everyone had a great and fun filled Pongal celebration.Usually for Pongal celebration we make both sakkara pongal and milk pongal along with pongal kottu.This year I made only sakkara pongal since I have severe sinus infection and cough,could't make rest of the dishes.There are lots of versions of sakkara pongal with different cooking methods such as open pot,pressure cooker method.Today I made it in pressure cooker which is very easy to make and now on to the recipe....
|Mong Dhal||11/2 tbs|
Wash the rice for 2-3 times and soak it for 10 minutes and drained.
Heat the pressure pan and dry roast the moong dhal to a golden color or till nice aroma comes out.Now add the rice,fry it for a minute and cook it with 23/4 cups of water for 3 whistles in a medium flame.
- Milk(1/2 cup) can also be added along with water(reduce the amount of water accordingly).
- Pongal becomes thick upon cooling,turn off the stove when it is in a slightly running consistency.
- If the pongal becomes thick add 1/2 cup of hot milk with a tsp of sugar and mix it well.
