So coming to my post for today 😊
Tis the harvest season in India and is celebrated through out the the country with different names.
Sankranti in Karnataka,Pongal in Tamil Nadu and Lohri is Northern part of India,Punjab.
Farmers celebrate the festival to mark the harvest season and are grateful for the bounty that year.
Specific dishes are made to mark the festival. Since I am from Karnataka, we call it huggi where as in Tamil Nadu it is called pongal which is the mixture of yellow mung dal and rice seasoned with salt and pepper. The sweeter version of this would be with Jaggery and loads of ghee.
My thali above features, rice,papad,broadbeans stir fry, pongal, okra stir fry and hot rasam..
Like we say, pongaloo..pongal!!!!
