Pongal is the harvest fetival celebrated in Tamilnadu. I have already shared quite a few pongal recipes. This is one of the basic pongal recipes that is made on pongal day along with sakkarai pongal (sweet pongal). It is also known as vellai pongal and its just fresh harvested rice cooked in milk using an earthen pot. The aroma of fresh harvested rice along with milk is considered very pleasing and satisfying. Most people do not add moong dal or anything extra. However, I prefer to add some moong dal and some grated coconut which adds a great texture and taste to the dish. It is traditionally served along with pongal kuzhambu or any vegetarian gravies. Kids enjoy this mild and creamy rice dish. So here is the recipe.
