Happy Pongal!

It is great when you wake up on a Monday morning and it happens to be a holiday! The cherry on the cake is that the holiday is for Pongal- a festival to celebrate the abundance of food and good health at home.
Yours truly did not move one finger for anything but taking pictures. All the cooking was done by Amma, that too in record time!

Before i knew it, there was a spread of venn pongal ( khara pongal) , shakkarai pongal, sambar and avial for the usual Pongal brunch after the pooja. Was planning to post the recipe. But you can find it here. The only difference being, Amma adds a pinch of pepper powder instead of the salt and lots of coconut shavings get fried in ghee, along with the dry fruits and add a great texture to the Pongal!
So here is wishing all of you lots of prosperity at home and to churning out many more lovely delicacies in the kitchen the year ahead. Iniya Pongal Nalvaazhtukkal!
