TIYYA PONGALI/SWEET PONGAL-PONGAL SPECIAL | SOUTH INDIAN FAMOUS FESTIVAL SWEETS





You people know the chakkera pongali.....one of the famous prasadam/nivedyam of so many temples..this is too same like that..but instead of sugar i added jaggery...I added milk for a rich taste..but it depends on your taste..
Ingredients
raw rice-1cup
green gram/moong dal-1/4cup
powdered jaggery-1/2cup
ghee-1/2cup+2tsps
milk-5cups
cashwes-5
raisins-5
cardamom-3
Preparation
wash and soak the rice and dal for atleast 15mins.....
mix both and pressure cook for 3whistles with 4cups of milk.......rice should be very soft and mushy...
In other pan add jaggery and little bit of water..and bring it to boil just for few mins..it should be like syrup......
add this jaggery syrup to the rice and dal mixture and mix well..
and add remaining 1cup of milk and ghee mix well and cook for few mins...til the nice aroma comes out..
in the 2tsps of ghee fry the cashew and raisins and add it to the rice and add the cardamom powder too.........

NOTE
pressure cooking the rice saves the time..adding the milk gives a nice taste..
instead of plain milk you can use coconut milk too which gives the more flavour to the sweet......
you can add fried small coconut pieces too...
if you think adding ghee is very heavy to eat you can substitute it with butter...
