Not Your Everyday Yogurt Rice
If there is one time of the year I yearn to be in India it has to be hands down for Pongal, have fondest of memories growing up during Pongal/Sankranti. Relatives, new clothes, movies, endless sessions of cards and lastly food , boy did they cook in humongous quantities. Miss my grandparents and their home quite a bit, my family, my brothers and my cousins too, home truly had a festive spirit with all the laughter and fun.
Today’s recipe comes from my cousin who fortunately lives in the same country as I, we were like sisters growing up, cannot tell you how many all-nighters we pulled , there wasn’t a thing we could hide from each other, our moms dressed us the same, we took same classes, attended same schools we pretty much were a carbon copy of each though she was a year younger to me. I always share that special connection with her. This is her recipe and trust me once you try this there is no going back.
Now what festival is complete without food huh ?
