  1. I make this Pongal in Bronze Vessel. Because, it is more healthy. If you make this pongal in Cooker, you have to add 1:3 Cup of water. It means for 1 cup of little Millet, You have to add 3 Cups of Water.
  2. Don’t put soaked Lille Millet and horse Gram directly into cooker. You must boil Horse gram separately. If you put both directly means Horse Gram don’t boil/cook.
  3. I never use Refined Products Like Salt, Sugar And Oil. Also I don’t Use Maida, Artificial Colour and Flavours for my Recipes. I Never use Aluminium Utensils and Non Stick and Oven in My Cooking.
