Milk Pongal - paal pongal - How to do paal pongal

Paal Pongal is an authentic recipe made during Sankaranthi or pongal festival. This pongal is made with Rice and Milk. Freshly  harvested rice with milk gives creamy texture to Pongal and it, goes very well with Pongal Pulusu(Pongal kuzhambu). We will be very eager to eat Paal Pongal When Pongal is Nearing. Sankaranthi or Pongal never ends without Paal Pongal.

Milk - 7 cup.
raw rice - 1 cup.
salt - for taste.

Wash and Soak the rice for 30 minutes, like you soak the rice normally,then drain it and keep it aside.

  • Take a thick bottomed kadai, add 6 cups of milk, when it  got boiled, keep the stove in moderate flame, then drain the rice, and add to it.
  • Stir  regularly, when 3/4 of rice is cooked,and milk is almost absorbed by rice,add 1 more cup of milk, and  make a flame low and keep on stirring, till it is completely cooked.


  • Note that 7 cup of milk is enough to cook 1 cup of rice, at times, if rice is not cooked well,   you can add some more  milk to cook it. 
  • Add salt,after the rice is completely cooked, if u add salt in between, rice won't cook properly.
