பால் பொங்கியாச்சா?

பால் பொங்கியாச்சா?

When we were kids, We used ask the above among our relatives and neighbours when we meet on the Pongal day. We asked even today. Same question to you.... :-)

Those days are still memorable... Traditionally, we know, people prepare pongal in a mud pot under the sun, as in Villages even nowdays. However, my mom used to cook Pongal under the sun, but in silverwares. The event of the day, used to be a tough competition to finish off the entire sugarcane first.


Time has changed now, due to modern flat culture everywhere. Pongal on gas stoves...

Eventhough, most of us miss those traditional scenario, I'm still happy that the momentum is kept alive. Thru TV reminders. Shopping in Little India and a some-what traditional Pongal cooking. Better than, the Pongal cooked in the rice-cooker...

So.....

அனைவருக்கும் தமிழர்த் திருநாள் வாழ்த்துக்கள்.....

பொங்கல் வாழ்த்துக்கள். பொங்கல் புகைப்படம் அருமை. இன்னொரு மின்னஞ்சலில் இதே புகைப்படம் வந்தது. அதை வைத்து உங்கள் பதிவைத் தேடிக் கண்டுபிடித்தேன்.
