Sweet Pongal / Sakara pongal

Hi friends,
             Today we'll check out the recipe for the pongal festival.  Usually everybody in Tamilnadu prepare pongal for the harvest festival on 1st of tamil month "Thai".  We clean the house and the previous day of pongal, we celebrate "Bhogi" which means burning the unwanted things . Actually pongal should be prepared in earthen pot.  But here I used the pressure cooker. Pongal festival is celebrated to thank the "Sun" god  (Aadhavan). We worship the God with pongal and sugar cane .
