Sakkarai Pongal

Sakkarai pongal is an auspicious neivedhyam made in many perumal(Lord Venkateshwara) temples. It is the main recipe made on the occasion of Thai Pongal. However it is also made at home during many occasions. We can make this recipe with or without adding milk into it. Here I have posted the recipe without adding milk into it.
