Pongal greetings to all. In case you are visiting Chennai this festive season, we recommend you enjoy the special menu offering various Pongal options.

ITC Grand Chola has introduced a festival menu for foodies which includes delicious items to soothe one's tastebuds and celebrate Pongal 2024. Take a look at five dishes you must try from Madras Pavilion, ITC Grand Chola.

(1) Aval Pongal: While rice is often used in preparing Pongal, the dish can also be made with Poha (Aval in Tamil) which adds a unique flavour to it. This recipe is a must try to raise the festival spirit.

(2) Kara Pongal: The dish that is a no-no for many people on usual days is a celebratory preparation on this day. The Kara Pongal is also known as Khichdi and is the significant dish prepared during this festival.

(3) Vazhaipoo Vada: Ever tried vada made from Banana flowers? This crispy recipe is something you would love to add to your plate this Pongal.

(4) Sundal: Many long for Navratri celebrations to taste Sundal which is highly proteinous. However, the restaurant also has on its Pongal menu this traditional recipe.

(5) Paruppu Payasam: One can complete their meal with either sweet (shakkara) Pongal or this kheer which is prepared from chana dal and jaggery.
