Broken Wheat Sweet Porridge | Samba Godhuma Sakkara Pongal | Ugadi 2011 Greetings!

Ugadi Greetings to all my dear readers and Friends.

Hope you had a great festival day today. With all of us not being in the best of our health, we just wanted to keep the pooja simple. Of course we can't let the day go off without us making the Poli, and Vankaya Urlagadda Kura,  Ugadi Pachadi,

We are slowly getting back to normal things. Never thought a simple cold and cough can be so terrible. The day is special in another way being I completed 6 years at my  current office. Our management has the wonderful gesture of sending flower bouquet and a signed card. Every year I get that, it makes me feel so good. More than my own reaction, I love the way my family reacts. 

Getting back to the sweets that one can make, this sweet pongal is made with Samba Godhuma. Turned out so well. 

 Broken Wheat

Ingredients Needed:

Broken Wheat - 1/4 cup

Milk - 2 tbsp

Dry ginger/ sonti (opt)

Both Sonti and fennel are optional but adds great taste.

Happy Ugadi Valli. Hope kids are doing good. Nice sweet - is it without ghee Valli? Viji

Srivalli said...

Thank you for the wishes everybody!

Viji, Yes we made it without ghee, but we can always add if we want..but the glaze on the top is because I greased the cup with a ghee before tilting it back..:)
