Ever wondered what we do for the Pongal festival that falls in January every year? Here's something my friend Vinita shot at her church, with her mobile phone. Pongal is a harvest festival in Tamil Nadu, India. So you get yourself a mud pot that's usually painted on the outside with ethnic designs. You place it on a wood stove and put in rice to boil. That's how you make Pongal, which also happens to be a rice dish that's popular here for breakfast. Once done, you mix it with sambar and coconut chutney that's gives as sides or dips, if you will.
Interesting, isn’t it? Pongal is a festival as well as a popular breakfast dish.
