Ven pongal is a very easy and comfort food. Mostly in weekend mornings I make it to laze around. In contrast to Vj, Aj won’t even touch this one. I make it only with chutney if I want to make it simple. But brinjal or any sort of gothsu will be great side dish for pongal. Even tiffin sambar will be great accompaniment. But I love it both with sambar and chutney together. Having said pongal is easy job at kitchen, its tricky too to get the right consistency. I have struggled a lot to get it right. Now for only us I make it perfect, but if I need to make for more people, I am not still that confident to make it. Sometimes the pongal becomes so dry or so watery. But I have some trouble shooting ideas now if I run into trouble. Will add as notes in the bottom. A reader asked me to share the recipe and here you go Jaishree…
Check out the side dish that goes well with pongal from Rak's kitchen :
Easy Pongal gothsu
Tiffin sambar with moong dal
Tiffin sambar with toor dal
Serve it super hot with gothsu or chutney as an accompaniment. I made gothsu with potato and carrot the other day and ginger chutney.
