According to my Grandma, sweet pongal is prepared as naivedyam on Durgashtami day. So keeping with tradition, I prepared Sweet pongal. This recipe is from Amma(my mom). I believe there are many ways to prepare sweet pongal. Some prepare using jaggery and no milk while some others prepare with moong dal with no milk again..The addition of milk in this recipe makes the sweet a very rich one. In fact I forgot to add Cashew+Almond powder. Even otherwise definitely tastes divine!



Ingredients - 

Rice 3/4 cup
Chana Dal 1/2 cup
Milk 3 1/2 cups
Brown sugar 1 1/2 cup
Ghee(Clarified butter) 2 Tbsp
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
Roasted Cashews and Raisins for garnish

Method Of Preparation - 

Pressure cook rice and chana dal in milk.

In a heated sauce pan, add ghee and transfer the boiled rice and chana dal. 

Add brown sugar and cardamom powder and stir continuously until the sugar dissolves and the whole thing comes together.

Garnish with roasted cashews and raisins and I offered to 'The Goddess' and had a taste of this yummy treat!

Sending this off to 
 'Only Festive' event hosted by Khaugiri and initiated by Pari and also to Umm Mymoonah's "Any one can cook series 4 ".
