HOw was your Pongal celebration and all we for the first time we celebrated in a traditional way since we came Chennai by making it in the upstairs of our apartment in earthern ware .We had our lunch in banana leaves which makes the food more healthy and delicious.I shared few pictures on social media and got great comments too.Coming to this recipe no one ate the sugar cane we bought for pongal celebration and so I made the juice for kids to drink it easily.During summer we can street vendors sell these juices plenty on road,but main problem in it is hygiene and the ice they use.So please make it fresh at home and drink.Here I have not used any fancy machine to extract the juice ,I just used my mixer.
