Traditional Pongal in Chennai Page4

We had a Mud Stove earlier and we used this for making Pongal. The Mud Pot was placed at the center of Kolam with religious three lined marking. Few wooden sticks were placed in the stove for burning. The Mud Pot was placed over the stove. The native simple art work was done to the pot. Sandal and Kungumam dots were made over the pot. Sugarcane and Turmeric leaves were placed over the Kolam.

Required amount of water with soaked skinned green gram / பாசி பருப்பு - 100g was taken in the pot.

Few camphor pills were placed over the wooden sticks to easy catch fire for cooking Pongal. The camphor pills were ignited to start cooking.
