Usually i make aval payasam or moong dal payasam for friday pooja.Today being Aadi velli , i made this sweet pongal ( Chakkara pongal/sakkarai pongal in Tamil).I usually make sakkarai pongal for aadi velli , aadi perukku & thai pongal. For the other occasions we make rice payasam mostly.I have already posted an authentic, traditional sakkarai/ sweet pongal in my blog where i have shown how to make pongal in venkala paanai (pot). In this post , i have mentioned our usual method of making sweet pongal using pressure cooker. To make perfect sweet pongal, always use good quality raw rice & dark colored jaggery to get the best results in color & taste.Its very flavourful , tastes similar to Kovil pongal/temple pongal and u’ll love it for sure. Try this & let me know dearies . Check out the video too !
