Yet another year passed by and its the time when the sun into the zodiac sign of Capricorn (Makara). Its celebrated as the spring festival of India and all the fresh produce of crops are used to celebrate this festival. For South Indians, this pongal/huggi is the most important delicacy of the the day. Every house would have the sweet and the savoury version of the dish. And its a tradition in Karnataka , where we go to all our relatives and friends house distributing "yellu" ( a mix of Jaggery, dry coconut, sesame seeds and peanuts).And every house will offer you this dish to eat :-)
I have used jeera rice for this recipe.Its a short grained rice which is more flavourful than the ordinary rice.Hence, itwould perfectly fit into sweet dishes.
Serves 7-8 people
Note:- Add whole peppercorns about 6-7 , while cooking rice. It gives an extra punch to it.
As the mixture cool down , it becomes thick. So do not worry its a little runny.
