Saravana Bhavan Pongal Recipe / Hotel Style Ven Pongal

Ven Pongal is a very easy and comfort food in south indian cuisine... Usually I make it this when I am lazy to make breakfast recipes. I make with sambar, chutney, vadai, will be the great sidedish for Pongal.. Even Tiffin sambar will be great accompaniment....

Preparing pongal is easy job for me in my kitchen.. But I can browse this recipe from one of the blog and tried this... result was so amazing and loved by every one in my family...  The Main thing of this pongal is to be dry or more watery...

This is a hotel style pongal especially Saravana bhavan hotel pongal... My uncle like this very much, he often ask me to prepare this type of pongal, But I have already posted Ven pongal and Pongal sambar in my own recipe already in my blog You can visit it also.....
