Aval/Poha Sakkarai Pongal & Happy Pongal Wishes

Wishing you all a very happy Pongal/Sankranthi with a delicious sakkarai(sweet)pongal dish prepared with aval/poha..If u bored to makes out sweet pongal with usual rice and jaggery,give a try to this delectable poha sweet pongal which hardly needs very less time when compared with usual sweet pongal and tastes fantastic and delicious quite similar as the sweet rice pongal...I prepared this sweet pongal to celebrate the Pongal earlier this morning, coz its a working day as usual here and its quite hard to celebrate our festivals if the festivals days comes on working day, this morning was quite a hectic day but somehow i managed to cook my poha sweet pongal and vada to celebrate this auspicious day..since i had a quite less time to make out this aval pongal i didnt went for yellow split moongdal, if u want to try out along with moongdal,dry roast the moongdal and cook in a pan with enough water until they soft and add them to this pongal, personally i felt without moongdal this poha  sakkarai pongal tastes too delicious...Sakkarai pongal is always my brother's favourite and he loved anything as sakkarai pongal, am sending this fantastic, easy aval sakkarai pongal to Arundhuthi's Served With Love...


1cup Aval/Poha (thin)
1/2cup Jaggery (powdered)
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
2tsp Ghee
10nos Cashew nuts

Soak the powdered jaggery with half cup of water, let the jaggery get dissolves and filter it...Heat again and let them starts boiling, meanwhile wash twice the thin poha and add the washed thin poha along with cardamom powder to the boiling jaggery water, stir and mix everything well and cook until the water get absorbed, dont worry if its looks little soggy..put of the stove..

Heat the ghee and fry the cashew nuts until they turns golden brown..add the hot ghee and roasted cashew nuts to the aval sakkarai pongal and stir well..

Serve warm..
