MY NOTES

I adds jaggery always directly.but you can melt it first,sieve it and use in the pongal.

Cook quinoa until soft in medium flame.

Soak quinoa for 15-30 minutes minimum.. 

You can take pesara pappu/moong dal instead of chana dal..

I used 3% fat milk.can use full cream milk or coconut milk which tastes great.

Use fresh cardamom powder.
