3 step sakkarai Pongal(sweet Pongal)

Happy pongal to all.. Wish you all a very prosperous pongal. Lets celebrate this Tamil traditional day with very traditional sweet pongal.

Born and brought up in Chennai, we have celebrated all the festivals celebrated in Tamilnadu. My mom is a very good cook and has been cooking for 34 years and I have picked up a little from her😍

For every pongal day, she used to make the sakkarai(lit. Sugar in tamil) pongal. Although named as sugar pongal, it is traditionally made in Jaggery. The beautiful colour that comes from the jaggery is a sight you will hold on to always and the taste of this pongal will linger in your mouth for a long time.
