As u are aware sakkarai pongal is a traditional sweet dish prepared during the festival or any celebration time. Here comes the recipe.


Raw rice                   : 1 cup
Moong dal                : 1/4 cup
Grated Jaggery         : 1 1/2 cup
Cashew  nuts            :  25 g
Cardamom powder  : 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee                        : 1/3 cup
Water                       : 4 cups

Slightly roast moong dal till aroma comes and wash with rice and pressure cook by adding 4 cups of water.

Afterwards, open the pressure cooker and mash the rice dal mixture and keep aside. Take the jaggery and add 1/3 cup water and remove the dirt by  filtering. 

Take the filtered jaggery water in a heavy bottom pan and boil for few minutes, till raw smell goes. Now mix it with rice dal mix well and remove from the flame.

Add 3 table spoon of ghee and fry the cashews till golden brown and add to the pongal.  Add the remaining ghee, cardamom powder and give a nice stir.  Yummy sakkarai pongal is ready to serve.
