My mom's Special Chakkara pongal / Sweet Pongal - FiFth bloggiversary today!

Chakkarapongal is made using rice, lentils cooked with jaggery and tempered with cashews and raisins. Pongal without sweet pongal is unimaginable. My moms sweetpongal is my alltime favorite. I want to become like her, when my kid says that her moms chakkarapongal is unbeatable. My kiddo does not eat sweet. But for last pongal, she had chakkarapongal , like i used to have my moms..
