Pongal is an important festival of harvest. After the first harvest of the season, the new raw rice cooked with a sweetness and offer to the god as pongal padayal. It's like Diwali for all farmers, they usually get new clothes for Pongal festivals and grandly celebrate in their villages with family and friends. How can forget about sugar cane (Karumbu), karumbu is my all time favorite and waiting to taste it tomorrow.

Kalkandu Pongal is very easy to prepare and delicious. Kalkandu Pongal will be creamy while cook with milk. But I have prepared without milk because my mom won’t like milk in some recipes. No compromise on taste, the Pongal without milk is tastes well with the flavor of cardamom and ghee.
