I know I am posting this so late. This is one of the delicious treats that are prepared during festivals. I made this sweet pongal on Diwali day. Check out my version of this sweet pongal.
- 1 cup Rice, uncooked
- ½ cup Split Moong Dal (Pesara Pappu, Yellow Lentils)
- 2 cups Sugar
- 3 cups Milk
- 1 tsp Cashews
- 1 tsp Raisins
- ¼ tsp Cardamom Seeds
- 1 tsp Ghee (Clarified Butter)
Mix rice and dal together, wash well and pressure cook till cooked. Don’t add any salt.
Leave the milk and sugar mixture on the stove for some time on a medium flame until the milk boils and starts to thicken. Keep stirring now and then.
Enjoy this sweet pongal either at room temperature or cold.

I am also sending this to Srivalli's "Rice Mela".
