Karuppatti Sweet pongal - Karupati Sweet Pongal - Pongal recipes - Pooja recipes

This year I wanted to try karuppati / Karuppatti Pongal for naivedyam. I have tasted this at my mum's place I loved the flavour of it. Karuppati gives a unique flavour to pongal. I have added an additional 2 tablespoons of karuppati sugar than what my mum told me as I felt it is not sweet enough. You can adjust the karuppati measurement based on your preferred sweetness. I started using karuppati in my coffee (black coffee) about 2 years ago. From that time my hemoglobin level is well maintained so I always look for an opportunity to use palm jaggery / karuppati
