Wheat Rava Sakkarai Pongal |Gothumai Rava Sweet Pongal


Wheat rava sakkarai Pongal also known as Gothumai rava sweet Pongal is a delicious variation of the traditional sakkarai Pongal where we replace the rice with broken samba wheat rava giving it a unique nutty flavour.With addition of jaggery, ghee and cardamom powder this sweet Pongal is a perfect blend of sweetness, warmth and comfort.

Preparation of this Pongal is pretty simple, firstly we have to dry roast both broken wheat rava and moong dal until aromatic then pressure cook it with water and milk for 3 whistles until mushy.Then melted jaggery syrup is add along with other aromatic spices and allowed to cook until the Pongal thickens to desired consistency. Finally cashews and raisins roasted in ghee is added to the Pongal and given a good mix ,that’s it a delicious healthy wheat rava sweet Pongal is ready to serve.

Here I have cooked this recipe entirely in pressure cooker but if you want you can cook it in traditional open pot method too but make sure to add extra water and always keep stirring the pot to prevent burning.

Moreover if you want more creamier version of this Gothumai sakkarai Pongal you can increase the amount of milk and adjust the water ratio.

So what are you waiting for gather up the ingredients and make yourself a delicious creamy ghee oozing Gothumai rava sakkarai Pongal for this Pongal festival  and celebrate the auspicious harvest festival with your loved ones.Happy Pongal everyone !!Pongalo Pongal 🙏😍
