Paal Pongal/Milk Pongal – when you hear this name u may think its a sweet pongal recipe using milk.But Nooo,its just a white pongal recipe in which rice is cooked in milk+water.We usually make this pongal in a pot along with sakkarai pongal for the festival.It looks super white and tastes creamy & rich.We mix this rice with Sambar or kootu and enjoy it.But traditionally we offer this to God by keeping a piece of jaggery,banana with few drops of ghee.If you wish to make it as sweet pongal,you can add sugar & cardamom powder to it.This post is my last minute contribution to Pongal Recipes in this year.Lets see how to prepare Vella pongal/Milk pongal recipe with stepwise pictures !!
