katte pongal | navratri naivedyam day 1 recipe | dasara2023

 Day 1 Navaratri Naivedyam Katte Pongali | Sri Swarnakavacha Durgadevi 7-10-21|Dasara Special Recipes

Katte Pongal is a traditional rice and moong dal recipe that is often served in temples as Prasadam. A spicy, aromatic and tasty warm bowl of mixed ingredients with earthly lentils and starchy rice is one of the perfect comfort food.


Pongal is a popular South Indian food made with rice and moong dal, either a sweet or the kara Pongal. Ven Pongal or Khara Pongal is the name given to the savory version, which is tempered with ghee, curry leaves, black pepper, ginger, cumin, and Hing. This super, flavourful, delicious, and warm bowl of the dish is served to gods as Naivedyam not only in South Indian homes but also temples during regular pooja, auspicious days, and festivals.

Apart from the holy offering, this Pongal can also be served in the form of khichdi with added masala and onions. It is one of the ideal meals to serve for breakfast, lunch, or for dinner. It is one of the comfort food in many south Indian homes on a busy schedule. It is very easy to prepare and tastes super when accompanied with tamarind rasam( chaaru ).

Today's recipe is about Katte Pongal. I prepare this recipe in the pan whereas one can prepare even make this in a pressure cooker, instant pot, or even in a regular pot. Usually, this Katte Pongal is used to make with newly harvested rice and dal. Doing this recipe with aged-old rice and dal doesn't taste good. And for the tempering cow ghee is used. Cow ghee is one of the religious offerings and gives more aroma to the dish.
