Easy Pongal – Ven Pongal

Easy Pongal

Pongal also called as “Ven Pongal” is a traditional South Indian breakfast. My mom prepares it every sunday or on other special occasions when guests arrive. This version of the pongal is easy to cook with only a few ingredients but tastes equally good as the traditional one. Pack this Easy Pongal to school or office, giving your loved ones a complete healthy meal. I learnt it from my mom to cook complex recipes easily and quickly. She is a great inspiration for me in cooking. This Ven Pongal is usually served with sambar, chutney and vadai.
