So Pongal has it's roots in Tamil Nadu but the subtle flavours of this humble dish has made it a favourite throughout the country. Personally, I love sweet pongal more but I dont mind savoury pongal every now and then because let's admit it, it's delicious.
The spicy peppercorns along with the pungency of the amalgamation of ginger, curry leaves and asafoetida and also the buttery aftertaste of ghee, is truly soul warming.
The Pongal kit by @elthecook is super easy to make and is absolutely brilliant in terms of taste and I can vouch for it. You just need to wash the daal-rice mixture with water and pressure cook it for 3 whistles. And then mix the Tadka with the boiled rice-daal mix, add a tsp of ghee and top it with cashews! [The rice and daal, tadka and the cahsews come with the kit].
Again, it's priced at 279 bucks which is very very heavy on the pocket but they don't compromise on the quality and taste.
Priced at: Rs.279.00.

It's a great kit when you are craving for some comfort food,.
