Pongal is traditionally cooked in a clay pot or brass pot.
There are two types of Pongal dishes that are usually made in Singapore – sweet and savoury. Sakkarai Pongal is a sweet dish, while Venn Pongal is a savoury dish usually served as breakfast.
There are many ways to cook Pongal. The most common ingredients include rice, turmeric, cardamom, dal, ghee, milk, jaggery, and cashew nuts.
When the milk boils over the pot, family members gather around it and shout "Pongalo Pongal!"
