  Happy Bhogi, hope you are all enjoying festival with your family😍❤️. Today's recipe is sweet pongal which is very divine in taste and very aromatic. We can also call this sweet apongal as Chakkara Pongal, Sakkarai pongal. Today I prepared sweet pongal using jaggery, we can also prepare it using sugar. We can also offer this sweet pongal on Durga pooja's,vara Lakshmi pooja's. I used edible camphor to get temple prasadam taste. We can also use clove and grated nutmeg too, to get perfect temple flavour. Very small amount of edible camphor(pachha karpuram) is used. Edible camphor(pachaa karpuram) is differ from normal camphor, so take care while adding. 

  I use milk for preparing this sweet pongal which gives very good taste to pongal. Feel free to add ghee, as taste of pongal depends on the amount of ghee we add.

* You can also use grated nutmeg and clove to get more divine taste and flavour. 

* You can skip adding milk. 

* Adjust jaggery quantity as per your taste. 


** Do not close the pressure cooker lid immediately after adding water and milk. Let it boil for 2 minutes and then close it. This process will stops the draining of water from cooker while getting whistle. 

** Adding milk will give good taste and texture. 

** Important point to remember is add edible camphor not ordinary camphor. And very very little amount of edible camphor is added by crushing it with your fingures.

** If you feel your sweet pongal very thick then add hot milk or water and adjust consistency. I prefer adding hot or boiled milk. 

** If you want to have it like dessert then keep it in refrigerator for atleast 2 hr and serve it sool. 

** You can increase or decrease ghee quantity as per your taste. But remember adding good amount of ghee gives you delicious taste and texture to sweet pongal.
