Sakkarai Pongal in Tamil - Southern Sweet Dish By Preetha
Sweet pongal or sakkarai pongal is traditionally prepared during Pongal festival in January, which is celebrated as Lohri, Bihu or Makar Sankranti in various parts of India. Balance the sweetness with some arachivittai sambhar when you dig into this delicacy that's simmered slowly in an earthen pot.
Preetha�s endeavour is to promote south Indian cuisine through her YouTube channel, Dakshin Curry. She absolutely loves curry leaves, and can fit them happily into in any recipe. For those of you who curse the poor thing, dry roast and powder them or use them in your dishes and enjoy the health benefits she says.
