This morning while I was cooking Sakkara Pongal for the child who demanded we make it today since we are traveling tomorrow, while I was thinking I will share it online too I realised I haven’t posted it on blog at all. What a shame since it truly is one of my favorite South Indian desserts.
So here is Sakkara Pongal, a sweet version of the humble pongal. Sweetened with jaggery, flavored with cardamom, I love how the nuttiness of roasted moong dal (which BTW I started doing only after moving to Bangalore, never roasted my moong dal before) is complimented by Jaggery and cashews. Almond silvers are my own sweet addition to it, since I absolutely adore almonds.
May the festival of harvest bring along happiness, joy and success for you all.
