I wish all my readers and blogger friends a very HAPPY PONGAL. I am posting Aval karupatti pongal on the occasion of pongal festival 2018. Aval pongal is prepared with aval / poha and karuppatti / palm jaggery instead of our regular jaggery. Palm jaggery is one of the tastiest and healthy products. In southern part of India it is used in the preparation of sweet dishes. It is used as a substitute for sugar in the preparation of coffee, tea, etc. Palm Jaggery is rich in calcium, iron and other useful vitamins and minerals.

  • You may always replace karuppatti / palm jaggery with our regular jaggery. You can increase or decrease the quantity of jaggery as per your sweet level.
  • I have used red poha / red aval for preparing this pongal. You may always replace with white poha.
  • Edible Camphor enhances the taste of the dishes. It is used mainly in sweets and desserts. We use it in making Sakkarai Pongal which helps to enhance the aroma and flavor. It should be added only a pinch.
