Sakkarai Pongal is my fav...anything sweet I just cant resist. I have already posted a sweet pongal recipe with milk
but saw this traditional temple style chakkarai pongal recipe with only jaggery from a chettinad book my athai gave me. Having tried this recipe many times now thought to share the recipe here. I made only a small quantity so made it in pressure cooker but will surely update this post with steps of the traditional pot method later.
We use this vengala paanai(brass pot seen below) to make pongal on the festival day. Though in our native we used to make it in veragu aduppu(firewood oven)......through the days we have changed to gas stove but use the traditional pot to make the pongal. Now I have to keep up my promise to update the stepwise pics for the traditional pot method....hopefully by next pongal :) Now on to the recipe....
