Rava Sweet Pongal Recipe

Rava Sweet Pongal (Sakkarai Pongal using rava) is a quick and easy pongal recipe that can be made with sooji(rava),jaggery and moong dal as main ingredients.The method is same as how we make sakkarai pongal.I love anything made with rava from upma to kesari.You can also make this with wheat rava or broken rava to make it more healthy.As I am posting for pongal, I keep all the health factors aside and tried with fine rava ;)

Also I wanted to start using my new camera with a sweet dish and this happened to be the first batch of clicks for sharmis passions using it :) Ahhh dont ask me the experience it was pathetic, have to first sit with the manual and spend some time with the camera when the baby naps.
