Few days back when i was cleaning my bookshelf, i came across a old Aval Kitchen book, Jan 2015,where my picture of Sakkarai Pongal was published as a cover page. When i saw inside the book, there was a collection of Pongal recipes by Madam Menu rani Chellam and this samba wheat sakkarai pongal was also there. I wanted to try this for the pongal festival 2018. You can make this for navaratri, aadi velli neivedyam, thai velli neivedyam and any other festivals too.

Notes:
  1. There is not difference in taste between rice pongal and samba wheat pongal.
  2. Colour of the pongal depends on the color of the jaggery.
  3. I added 1 cup of jaggery to the samba wheat sweet pongal and it was perfect.
