Venpongal one of the favorite breakfast of south Indian people. Usually venpongal is served with sambhar and chutney. Nowadays we prepare it regularly as my daughter likes to have it as the rice and dal is mushy you can feed toddlers.
Venpongal is given as prasadham in most of the temples. And it really tastes good. It is prepared by the Brahmins of the temple. Most of the south Indian hotels have venpongal as one of the breakfast in their menu. People will eat this Pongal with a vada too, Pongal and vada combination is great. This venpongal made with ghee and the medu vada keeps you full for longer time when you have it as breakfast. And one of the drawback of eating this Pongal is we will get a nice sleep after eating this may be the reason your stomach became full or the ghee which is added makes you to go in sleep mode.
During my childhood my mom’s prepare this in only during holidays as I feel sleepy at school once I have this as a breakfast.
