Karupatti Pongal Recipe/Palm Jaggery Pongal Recipe-How to make Karupatti Pongal with step by step photos

Today, I am going to share a traditional and tempting Karupatti Pongal. We usually make sakkarai Pongal in a pot, but in this post I am sharing an easy way to make sakkarai Pongal in a pressure cooker. Usually jaggery is used to make Sakkarai Pongal, but I have replaced it with Palm Jaggery/Karupati. Karupatti/Palm Jaggery is made from the extract of the palm tree. It is a very healthy and traditional sweetener and is an excellent alternative for white sugar.

Karupatti is rich in essential Vitamins, Minerals and Amino acids. Palm jaggery is rich in iron and it increases hemoglobin and treats anemia if consumed regularly. It is rich in magnesium and helps to regulate the nervous system. Presence of calcium helps to build and maintain strong bones. It also contains potassium which boosts heart health, decreases cramps and has several other benefits as well. It boosts the immune system and thus prevents several blood-related and other disorders.

A very special Abishekam and Pooja is performed in Uthirakosa Mangai, where Natarajar is 6 ft tall, made of one single stone of Maragatham[Emerald] and also in all other Shivan Temples.  

In Thillai Chidambaram, a 10 day festival is held during Thiruvathirai. On this day, Lord Natarajar and his consort, Goddess Shivagami [Parvathi] are taken out in a grand procession. It is a very special event in which the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva is enacted. On Thiruvathirai, women will fast during the day time and break the fast after witnessing the moon rise.
