sweet pongal recipe | chakkara pongal with brown rice
Sakkari pongal with jaggery. Pongal is a traditional dish prepared for Tamil Harvest Festival called Pongal. There are lot many varieties in pongal like kara pongal, sakkarai pongal etc. Today, I would like to share the recipe of sweet pongal also called sakkarai pongal. This is a very easy to make sweet dish with rice and very less ingredients.
Here I prepared sweet pongal with brown rice and jaggery to make it more nutritious. You can use any rice varieties of your choice. I made this sweet pongal in a traditional way hence no milk is added to this recipe. If you want you can add coconut milk which gives a unique taste to the pongal. I have already posted Paal pongal/ Milk Pongal recipe with milk and rice.
