This is a very famous South Indian recipe especially in Tamilnadu. I have learned this recipe from my neighbour Laxmi who was from a typical Tamil family. Every Saturday morning, Laxmi's mother prepared milagu pongal and it was eaten by the whole compound. Always Laxmi's mother makes this dish with a pinch of love which makes the recipe more delicious.

I followed you recipe to the T. You forgot about salt. And I did too but I added it in the ghee mix though, it didn't mix that well. It did turn out nice.. Thanks ! for the recipe. - 28 Feb 2014
