Pongal festival recipes

Hello friends,
In this post, you can find the collection of Tamil Festival -Thai pongal festival recipes and kaanum pongal recipes. Pongal is a harvest festival of Tamilnadu. In other parts of South India, people celebrate this festival as Makara Sankranti. I have made a detailed post on our Tamil Nadu style Pongal Celebration. Please check the link given below. 

On Pongal festival day, traditionally we make special dishes like sakkarai pongal/Sweet pongal in pot (venkala paanai), milk Pongal/ Vellai pongal, Urad dal vada without onion, suzhiyan, adhirasam, Payasam, pongal Sambar/Pongal kuzhambu, poriyal, kootu, thayir pachadi and offer to God for neivedyam. It should be a no onion no garlic lunch menu. On kaanum pongal day, we make either 5 rice varieties or a simple lunch menu with rice & thengai thogayal/Coconut thogayal. 

I have shared the links for all these recipes. I have also shared the links for few Andhra & Karnataka Makara Sankranti recipes. Please click on the specific picture to see the recipe. Wish you all a very happy pongal !!
