Chakkara pongal Recipe

Chakkara pongal is a traditional sweet in south india and also one of the important prasadams (offering) for lord venkateswara in tirupati. Especially in dhanurmasam [december15th-january 15th), the sagittarius month in the hindu calendar] in vishnava temples [lord vishnu temples] priests perform pooja early morning and offer this chakkara pongal to lord vishnu. In my home, my grandmother and my mom use to make this prasadam every friday and offer it to goddess lakshmi . We call this sweet dish as deevudi pongal.
