Brown Rice Sakkarai Pongal - Pongalo Pongal

Wishing you all a happy pongal wishes!!!..After trying out a varieties of sweet and savoury pongals, am here with a delicious,healthy sweet pongal prepared with brown rice,moongdal along with jaggery..This pongal is really very quick to prepare as i went for pressure cooking the rice and dal together and finally cooking them in a jaggery syrup with cardamom powder and roasted cashew nuts,ghee...Needless to say that this pongal vanished within few minutes,yep we loved the warm sweet pongal and enjoyed  it..
