Paal Pongal Recipe (Milk Pongal) | Pongal Recipes

Paal Pongal / Milk Pongal - We make this along with sakkarai pongal and pongal kuzhambu . I personally prefer the sweet version but hubby likes this salt version more.
Chakarai & Ven Pongal
Paal Pongal - Ingredients:

Rice - 1 cup
Moong dhal - 3 tbsp
Coconut - 2 tbsp
Cashews - few broken and fried in ghee
Milk - 2 cups
Water - 1 cup
Salt - to taste

Chakarai & Ven Pongal
Method:
1.First roast moong dhal and keep aside.Rinse rice and add it along with moong dal in a pressure cooker. Add 2 cups milk and 1 cup water.Make sure your pressure cooker is big enough the water milk and rice mixture should just be to 1/4th of the cooker so that it will not overflow.
Chakarai & Ven Pongal
2.Pressure cook it for 3-4 whistles until soft. Mash it well with a laddle and add the remaining milk and mix well.Allow it to boil for 3mins until its thick.Add required salt.
Chakarai & Ven Pongal
3.Add coconut, ghee and give a quick stir.Add the ghee fried cashews and switch it off.
Chakarai & Ven Pongal
Serve it with pongal curry / kuzhambu the best accompaniment!
Chakarai & Ven Pongal

My Notes :

  • Don't skip coconut here as its the only main ingredient that gives flavour to the pongal.
  • Any veggie gravy will get along with this very well, so when combined and had, no salt is required!

  32. Hello Sharmilee,

    thanks for stopping and for the sweet comments at my space.

    happy Pongal (belated wishes) to you and to your family!!! lovely decorated paanai-s you've got there;

    With the picture of the pongal almost "pongi-fying" (yes, the word exists in my vocabulary, hihhihhi), I have that irresistible urge to dip my fingers right inside to have a mouth of it :):)

    both the pongals look great; I did Pongal but yet to post it, I think I'll end up posting it only for next Pongal !!!
