Chakari Pongali/Sweet Pongal

I made this pongali on the bhogi day.I love this combination of jaggery,moong dal and rice.Very easy to make and very tasty dessert.


Raw rice 1 cup
Moong dal (pesara papu) 1/4 cup
Jaggery 1/3rd cup
Elachi 1
Cashew few
Raisins few
Badam 4 (soak and blanched)
Ghee 3 tbsp


Soak moong dal for 2-3 hours.
In a pan take ghee and fry cashew,raisins and badam separately.Keep aside.
Pressure cook rice and dal,approx for 4-5 whistles
In a deep bottom pan take jaggery and 1/2 cup of water.
Bring it to boil.Then add the cooked rice and dal.
Mix throughly and add the cashew,elachi,raisins and badam.
The left over ghee after frying the dry fruits can also be added to the pongali.
Let all the water dries up and jaggery is thoroughly mixed with the rice.Then switch of the stove.
