To celebrate Pongal, Sakshi Tanwar prepares Sakkarai Pongal, a kind of sweet halwa. She regales us with various Pongal stories from her mom’s collected postcards, including a Shiv and Nandi story. She then makes Pulihora or tamarind rice which is common to the four states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. There’s also Chola Paniyaram made from sorghum and urad dal that’s considered a royal dish. Sakshi serves it with a special coconut chutney.
