Once In a week I do puja like cleaning  Idols,lamp sets etc....On that day I also offers nivedyam/food for god.Nowadays my two kids are robbing my time and even they are not  giving at least few minutes to do puja or to make some sweet..VERMICELLI PAYASAM is my signature  recipe which I makes often for puja.(Actually it took very few mins to make)..But now For a change I thought  to make some different recipe which can prepare in  less time...                                    

RICE FLAKES/POHA.One of the common Food ING which can see in every home..Poha is healthy and at the same any recipe with poha saves our time..I watched out so many different kind of POHA UPMA recipes in co-blogs.For a change I planned to make some sweet pongal with POHA. So,finally the result is this...When you are in urgent or consumed to eat some thing delicious then try this once..It may take 15 mins of your time and the result will be the awesome...

I fell in love with this sweet pongal and decided to prepare on festival times in future.Hope you will love this too....

MAHAS NOTES

1.If the pongal looks too thick while cooking add some more milk ..

2.Depending on the POHA variety add jaggery and dal...

3.If you are sweet tooth add 1 cup of jaggery..

4.Replace jaggery with sugar..
