Hope u all had a great pongal celebration. I too had a good time in my in-laws house and we celebrated very well .. I wanted to post sakkarai pongal recipe in pot for a long time. I think this is the right time to post this recipe along with some pictures of pongal celebration in my house.This time pongal turned out very tasty , flavourful and soft..It tasted great even the next day after reheating.I’ve given the step by step pictures for making pongal traditionally in a pot. U can do the same in pressure cooker. The quantity of ingredients i’ve given is the same for both except water quantity. The amount of water may vary for cooking in aluminium or brass pot and the cooking time also differs. In pressure cooker, u can make it fast..In Tamil Nadu, we get pongal arisi and paagu vellam during this time and we used to buy that for making pongal. In bangalore , i buy good quality sona masuri raw rice and i make sure to buy dark colored jaggery to get a nice color of pongal. So the color of pongal may vary depending the color of jaggery u use. The water quantity may also vary depending on the quality of rice. I’ve tried to approximate the water quantity as per the rice varieties i used.Lets see the Tamil nadu traditional method of making sweet pongal in a pot !
