Recipe for Sarkarai pongal made of sarkarai. This is not as famous as the Sarkarai Pongal made of Jaggery. My grand ma makes this on Pongal day itself. But my mom makes it during Kanu.

Ingredients:
Milk - 1/2 ltr
Raw Rice - 1 cup
Moong Dal - 1/3 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 small bit
Cardamom - 3 to 4 nos
Cashew nut - 12 nos
Ghee - 1 cup

Method:
Wash and pressure cook rice and moong dal in 4 cups of water. When done mash the rice well. Add sugar and milk and mix well. In low flame cook for another 5 mins by stirring constantly.

Remove from flame, powder the cardamom and add it to the Pongal. Fry cashew nut in 2 tbsp of ghee untill it is golden brown in colour and add it to the Pongal. Add the remaining ghee.

Can be served as a part of breakfast along with Ven Pongal and Medu Vadai.
