Traditional Pongal in Chennai Page7

Now the heat was reduced and the Pongal water came back to normal level inside the pot.

Soaked Raw Rice / பச்சை அரிசி - 1kg was added to the cooking pot. 

The cooking rice and green gram was taken from the pot with a ladle / கரண்டி and checked for the softness or cooked condition of rice.

The Pongal pot was closed for few minutes and when the Pongal boiled out we shouted "Pongalo Pongal" / "பொங்கலோ பொங்கல்" three times.
