Hello Lopa!I'm Radha from bangalore.I'm reviewing your recipe.This recipe which you have written tastes good but sorry to say that this is not the original recipe of chakkara pongal.When you are grinding rice and dal mixture to a paste then this will become halwa and not pongal.Being a southIndian I would like to say that for chakkara pongal you need not grind the rice and dal mixture to a paste,both the grains should be clearly visible,so I would request u to correct the recipe.
