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.


Mushroom Pepper Fry - Milagu Kaalan Varuval

Mushroom pepper fry - deliciously easy mushroom dish made with onions, ginger garlic paste, curry leaves, button mushrooms and seasoned with coarsely ground pepper and fennel. I learnt this recipe from one of my neighbors and it was delicious. You can also pair it with some rice varieties like fried rice or jeera rice. You can also have this as a quick appetizer too.



For this mushroom pepper fry, first you have to do the chopping works and the grinding works. As I told you before, freshly ground ginger and garlic paste taste good for this dish. The black peppercorns are coarsely ground with fennel seeds. Now you are ready to start the cooking process. Simply adjust the spiciness more or less according to your taste. For stir frying I have used coconut oil, you can use your favourite one.
