Pongal

I ate a Tamil Nadu breakfast while my eyes wandered over a menu painted on the wall above, deciding what to eat for breakfast the following morning.

Pongal

One of these early morning delights I relished was pongal — a mushy rice and dhal based mixture with a generous helping of cumin seeds, whole black peppers and coconut. I craved the taste after I left South India and had to find out the rest of the missing ingredients — one of the many delights of the internet.

Mine may not be as authentic (since I have no access to banana leaves), but at least I can eat this delicious breakfast any time.
