Sakkarai Pongal/ Palm Sugar Pongal

Hello everyone, how's your Navratri celebrations going on? I hope everyone are very well blessed with Durga ma's blessing. As for me this is a great week of the year ever, okay for today's neiveidyam I have cooked Sakkarai Pongal or Palm Sugar Pongal. 

This is a pongal loved by my whole family, be it the young ones or the oldies. We don't add so much of sugar until it's so sweet and people who are very concerned about health can't consume. Now let's check our how I cooked this;


2 cup of cooked rice
1/2 cup of palm sugar (dissolve in 1 cup of water)
1/4 cup of white sugar
3 tbsp of milk
2 cups of water
10 cashew nuts
10 yellow raisins
1 tbsp of ghee
2 cardamoms
A pinch of salt

Heat ghee in a pan

Fry cashew nuts until golden brown

Add in yellow raisins with the cashews

Pour palm sugar mixture, sugar, salt and bring to a boil

Add cardamom, when palm sugar mixture boils and reduce in quantity

Add cooked rice and mix well

Add milk and mix well, let water evaporate

See this is how pongal should be after water evaporated

Now our Sakkarai Pongal is ready to be served

Do try and let me know how it turned out for you!

I'm sending this recipe to Priya's Event Navratri 2012
