Yummy Milkyway pongal is ready

  • If u r afraid to cook the rice in milk,u can add half litre to the rice and add the rest later
  • U can substitute the milk with water to avoid high calories
  • The proportion of milk ,sugar and rice is 6: 1:1(So,measure with same cup for all ingredients)
  • U can also make this with milk powder in cooked rice...jus add amt of milk powder needed for one litre of milk(I think 1 tsp=30 oz,so some 30 tsps goes)
