Hi Renuka,
Thank you very much for the divine post.Brought back the memories of childhood when mother and grandmother would make pongal on wood fire.pongal gets a distinct smoky flavour because of that.Lucky you,got to celebrate pongal in a traditional way.

Hi Renuka,
Lovely pictures. Why do they add banana in those pots? is it by knowing pongal is done because after finished they floated on top. But both looks divine...

cheers
