Hello friends,

Pongal is a very common South Indian Breakfast made with raw rice and  moong dal  and tempered with green chillies, ginger, black pepper cumin etc. To make this pongal more healthy you can replace the raw rice with varagu arisi and make a tasty and healthy breakfast. Varagu Arisi is loaded with protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Varagu when consumed regularly helps to keep diabetes under check and controls obesity. This tiny grain is highly nutritious and is “gluten free”. Have shared some of the benefits, I think it’s time to move on to the recipe.

Sakkarai Pongal/Sweet Pongal with Jaggery/Chakkarai Pongal

Sakkarai Pongal/Sweet Pongal with jaggery is an authentic and traditional dish prepared on special pooja days and occasions for neivedhyam. Usually sakkarai pongal is prepared in “vengala paanai” [bronze pot] or in a mud pot, but here I used a regular heavy bottomed vessel. Sakkarai Pongal is made with rice, dal, jaggery , milk and ghee on Pongal – Harvest festival of Tamil Nadu and offered to Sungod. Today being Puratasi [Tamil Month] Saturday, I made this special sakarai pongal for Lord Venkateshwara. Puratasi month is very important for Tamilians because it is believed that lord Venkateshwara appeared on the Earth in this month. All the Saturdays of puratassi month fasting is observed and special prayers are performed. Sometimes fasting is carried out throughout the month also.
