Pongal for Prasadam | Sweet Pongal | Khara Pongal

Pongal

First of all "Wish you all a very happy Pongal"

Sankranti / Pongal Fest is approaching and I am sure we are all so excited about the new year. Needless to say, we end up enjoying numerous Pongal varieties during our visits to our friends and relatives.

MIL usually makes this as prasadam for Goddess Lakshmi Devi. And for sure we will have this as prasadam after the morning pooja on the Sankranti day.

This is one of the varieties which is a mix of Salt and sweet versions of Pongal. Very delicious and I bet there is no other recipe simpler and quicker than this. :)

Ingredients:
Rice : 1/2 cup
Moong Dal - 1/2 cup
Jeera - 1 tspn
Black Pepper - 1 tspn (Lightly crushed)
Turmeric - a pinch
Salt to taste
Water : 2 cups

To garnish
Fresh coconut - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 2 - 3 tspn

Method:
1) In a cooker, wash rice and dal and add all the except the ones in To garnish and let it whistle thrice.
2) Once done, mix all the ingredients well and serve hot topping it up with fresh coconut, sugar and ghee.
3) Pongal is ready to be served for Lakshmi as prasadam.

Cheers!
