Pongal is my top most favorite whether it is a sakkarai Pongal or ven Pongal. I never seek other foods if Pongal available on my plate. I tried the Rava Pongal for the first time and never tasted the Pongal before I attempted. Yes! I just followed the recipe of rice ven Pongal and prepared it. It was coming out really delicious, creamy and heavily heavenly too… (The Pongal was tasted like restaurant servings, so happy about the result and everyone loved it much.

My dad used to call the pongal as “thooka mathirai” (sleeping pills). Haha! Yes… whenever he had it, he goes to sleep whether its morning or night. Rava Pongal is very easy to prepare within 30 minutes. If you add the given amount of ghee to the Pongal, it will be rich and filling breakfast and you don’t feel hungry for the lunch too.
