Pal Pongal / Milk Pongal

This is a very traditional type of pongal recipe and very simple with only 3 ingredients.




Basically this pongal is prepared with new rice. This is more familiar with farmers of Tamil Nadu. As they make this at the time they harvest a new batch of rice. This pongal is considered as a very sacred type of food for them. They make this pongal and offer it to God(sun) as soon as they harvest the rice after all the hard work for a long time.

This is a savory type of pongal recipe. This can be accompanied with chutney or sambar.

Ingredients :



New rice - 1 cup (we are accessible to sona masoori rice only, so i used that)
Milk - around 8 to 9 cups (water can be added to dilute the milk to cut some calories)
Salt as required


Procedure :


Wash the rice and set it aside. Boil milk in a heavy bottom pan. When it starts to boil add the rice. Keep string in medium flame until the rice is completely cooked and the pongal looks creamy. (water or milk can be added if the mixture becomes very thick)

Finally add salt and served hot with chutney or sambar.
