Recipe Notes

  • In this recipe I didn’t fry the rice and not adding moong dal.
  • According to your taste you can fry the moong dal and raw rice and prepare this Chakkarai pongal. (It gives another sweet taste of pongal)
  • different style of sweet pongal recipe methods available like kovil sakkarai pongal recipe, sakkarai pongal brahmin recipe style (sakkarai pongal recipe iyengar) and sweet pongal recipe with sugar. This is a Kongu nadu  style simple Chakkarai pongal recipe.
  • There are two type’s jaggeries available in stores, one in dark brown colour and another in light brown colour.
  • Dark colour jaggery gives thick colour but less amount of sweet taste, light colour jaggery gives sweeter and less colour of pongal so according to this take jaggery level correctly.
  • Here I put jaggery raw, u can add filtered jaggery.
  • Few people prepare sweet pongal recipe with jaggery and milk
