Lapsi which is high in fibre,vitamin and complex carbohydrates and is also a great dish for diabetic people. For a change I tried these Puli pongal in lapsi. The dish is very simple and easy to make and requires ingredients that are easily available within the home only. This tangy version of pongal is prepared either for breakfast, lunch or dinner. . It is bit unusual from the regular pongal. It comes out very well and everyone likes different tangy &spicy taste.
