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.

All the ingredients are handy and you can grind it within 5 minutes. For this chutney, the only work you have to do is grating the coconut. There are many frozen grated coconuts or coconut powder, but nothing tastes better like the fresh grated coconuts. We have to add a good amount of red chillies, tamarind and asafoetida powder as it gives the main flavour for this thuvaiyal. Plus, if we reduce any one of the ingredients, it won't taste good when we mix it with rice. Finally, use fresh and tender curry leaves for this thuvaiyal because it is the star ingredient in this dish.
