Every time I visit India, one of my mandatory stops is at my sister's friend Jayashree's house. Why? She makes the best sweet pongal and puliyogare that I have ever eaten. The sakkarai pongal is absolutely divine. I got this recipe from her so I could share it with you all. When she makes the sweet, she uses 3/4 cup of ghee, so I have modified it to use only 3 tablespoons. It still tastes amazing, so it's an excellent compromise on taste and health.
