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.


Coconut chutney with green chillies- Pachai Thengai chutney

This coconut chutney with green chillies is a simple side dish for all the tiffin varieties. This chutney should be ground using the freshest ingredients. For this chutney do not use refrigerated coconuts and green chillies. Before grinding the chutney, keep the green chillies in room temperature 1 hour ahead of time. In Tirunelveli, for this chutney we add a small piece of tamarind and a few small onions for tempering. It is a very good chutney to serve with idly, dosa, pongal, vada, baji and bonda.
