Sakkarai Pongal/ Sweet Pongal/Sarkarai Pongal - An authentic South Indian sweet prepared during the harvest festival of Pongal/Sankranthi. It is also prepared in temples as naivedyam or prasadam. Pongal is made with rice, lentils and jaggery and flavored with cardamom and ghee.. absolutely delicious!!
The color of the pongal depends on the jaggery used. I have used normal jaggery. If you need a darker shade, then use Paagu vellam.
