Pongal --Kattu Pongal -- How to make Pongal

Pongal or kattu pongal is a special South Indian kichidi. This is prepared in marriages for breakfast. If is very delicious and my most favourite dish. Serve this with little spicy coconut chutney and ginger chutney. Preparing this dish is very easy but also a little difficult to get proper consistency. Once we get proper consistency, making of  it will become a minute job.
