Little About Ven Pongal
Pongal is a popular rice dish in Tamil Nadu. Pongal is unique to Tamil cuisine, Pong means "Boil over" or "Spill over". Pongal is the most simplest and easiest breakfast. Cook raw rice and dal and then do the seasoning with spices. It give unique tastes while adding pure ghee. Its goes well with coconut chutney and sambhar. 

Whenever I will go to hotel my order is never change that must be ven pongal... I love Sree  Annapoorna Sree Gowrisankar hotel ven pongal much than anywhere... Its taste will be so good with coconut chutney...
