The harvest festival Sankranti has rolled over and I am still in the hangover of that Big day feast. Reading the title of this post, you guessed so right? As I set out to make khara pongal, the little food blogger voice in me triggered to try some variation in the same. I had two options like replacing rice by some good cereal or modifying the authentic recipe adding some good stuff. The latter idea seemed quite obvious to me. Because I didn’t want to go beyond the usual tradition. So here comes the vegetable pongal recipe that has mild taste like it used to be but with vegetable crunch.
No doubt, the festival day feast has been elevated to next level with the inclusion of vegetable pongal to the menu. On top of that, it has turned in to power packed, wholesome meal now. This feel-good recipe is going to be part of my day-to-day cooking henceforth. I cannot afford to isolate such easy, healthy and awesome one pot meal to only festival season. What say??
