Paal pongal recipe
Paal Pongal/Milk Pongal – when you hear this name you may think its a sweet pongal recipe using milk. But a big 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 !!
