    Hi mullai, today i prepared sakarai pongal n ven pongal, followed ur recipes. sakarai pongal turnd excellent…….ven pongal tastewise gud,but the rice wasnt cooked like pongal. i got the normal rice texture. i used equal proportion of milk n water and left up to 4 whistles. i dnt knw where it went wrong.

          Quite surprising, we never add milk to ven pongal. Sometimes include in chakra pongal. Most of the time pressure cooked rice becomes very firm after a while, so better to have immediately after making it.

            Mullai, My sister used to prepare ven pongal using gives rich taste…..u might b right…..lemme give a try without milk n let u know……..Thanq for the prompt reply……

            My Mom and most of my relatives use milk which as Ramya said makes it richer. People can choose between rich and light. I like the light one.

    Good Mullai, Added flavour for venpongal, we can use 1:1 , like 1 cup of rice and 1 cup of Dal, in order to add more flavour just saute rice n dal for few mintues ( until u smell the flavour). Sure u'll get tasty tasty Pongal.
