Sakkarai Pongal in brass pot | Sweet Pongal in Traditional Pot method
Sakkarai Pongal in brass pot | Sweet Pongal in Traditional Pot method with step-by-step pictures and instructions. Learn how to make Sakkarai Pongal in a brass pot. Traditionally they use brass pot(vengala paanai) for making Pongal in villages. Pongal is always so special in our family and we celebrate it more than any other festival.
Though I use a cooker to make Pongal on normal days, I made it into the habit of making it in a pot last few years for Pongal following the tradition of my mom. We always make Paal Pongal and Sakkarai Pongal for the festival. Though I have posted so many different Pongal recipes, I realized I have not posted the basic version of the sakkarai Pongal. So here you go with my simple recipe in the traditional way.
Always boil enough water and take two cups of boiled water and add later if required to adjust the consistency of the Pongal. We always add grated or small coconut pieces to the Pongal and use milk to cook the Pongal. Use a generous amount of ghee and cashews to make it even more delicious.
