Sarkkarai Pongal - this is a quick and easy dish for prasadam. And this Sarkkarai Pongal has also been an absolute favourite prasadam for many of us. The taste of this Sarkkarai Pongal, depend on the quality of the jaggery we use. I usually prefer pagu vellam for pongal and payasam dishes. The colour and taste of this jaggery vary from place to place. Some jaggery are dark brown while others are yellow or orange coloured jaggery. In this recipe, I have used the dark brown jaggery and it tastes so good. My husband bought me this dark brown jaggery (Kottayam Vellam) from Nanguneri. Now let's see some important tips for perfect Sarkkarai Pongal.


Pepper dosa - Milagu Adai - Easy & Healthy Tiffin

Pepper dosa - easy and healthy breakfast dish. In South India major types of dosa are prepared using  rice and urid dal. This pepper dosa is also prepared with rice and urid dal but instead of white urid dal i have used black split urid dal.The dosa is flavoured with black pepper powder and to add some extra taste I have added finely chopped onions, fresh grated coconuts, curry leaves and cooked with coconut oil. The consistency of the batter should be thin like rava dosa batter. After grinding the batter you can immediately prepare the dosa and no need to ferment it. The black urid dal and black pepper powder are the main ingredients which give a unique taste for this dosa. The perfect accompaniment for this dosa are coconut chutney or curry leaves chutney.
