Happy Pongal with Sakkarai Pongal

"Happy Pongal" to everyone and I do miss home....

    
"I Wish everyone a Happy Pongal"..... with sakkarai pongal. It is the beginning of the harvest season and I pray that every joy abound every human....By this time all of you would have known the recipe for "Sakkarai Pongal"....but even then I have given the recipe to complete the post...


Raw rice/ pacharisi: 1 cup.
Moong dhal/ payatham payaru: 1/4 cup.
Whole milk: 3 cups.
Jaggery: 1 cup.
Water: 3/4 cup.
Cashews: 10.
Raisins: 10.
Cardamom pods: 4.
Edible camphor/Pachai karpooram: 1 pinch.
Ghee: 4-5 tbsp.


1.Wash the rice and dhal together. Drain and cook in the pressure cooker along with milk and cardamom for three whistles.Put off the flame.
2.Meanwhile place a deep vessel on medium flame. Add the jaggery and water.
3.Mix until all the jaggery is dissolved and simmer for 5-6 mins. Strain the syrup of impurities.


4.After the pressure settles down, open the cooker lid and mash the cooked rice with a wooden spoon.
5.Place the cooker on a medium flame and add the jaggery syrup to the cooked rice.
6.Mix thoroughly. Keep stirring frequently until the pongal comes together...nice and thick.
7.Fry the cashew and raisins in 1 tbsp of ghee. Add this along with the rest of the ghee and edible camphor.

 8.Mix well and serve hot.
