Chakkara Pongali is one of the main sweet dish made as Sankranthi Special. While there are many ways this sweet pongal is cooked, today’s recipe is a quick and easy one made during hurried times. I made this when I prepared the Andhra Thali, I was short of time and Amma suggested this as she normally make it during regular pooja times.
I had cooked rice ready and I quickly melted jaggery and made this sweet. It was ready in 10 mins time. This version of Sakara Pongal is the regular method that I make at home.
