Sweet pongal (Sakkarai pongal)

>> Monday, August 17, 2009

.

Sweet pongal is the famous Indian sweet prepared during pongal festival. Sprinkling the nuts roasted in the ghee, makes the perfect starter for the special occasion. And, I made this to celebrate my parents anniversary today. There are many variations of sweet pongal and this how my amma makes it. In most of the temples in south India, this type of sweet pongal is served after pooja.

Happy Anniversay dad & mom :)
Ingredients :
  1. Rice - 1/2 cup
  2. Milk - 2 cups
  3. Jaggery - 1/2 to 3/4 cup ( to ur sweet level)
  4. Water - 2tbsp
  5. Cardamom powder -1/2 tsp
  6. Nuts - 1/4 cup (Cashew nuts, raisins)
  7. Ghee - 2 tbsp
  8. Edible camphor - a pinch

Directions to cook :

# Clean & wash the rice well, add 2 cups of milk & pressure cook them.

# Heat the water in the pan, add the jaggery. Keep stiring continously. Once the jaggery melts, strain them to remove the sand if any.

# In the non-stick pan, add the strained jaggery & cooked rice. Cook on medium heat for 5 min till it becomes thick.

# Meanwhile heat the ghee & fry the nuts. Keep aside.
