We celebrated Pongal on Monday 1/14 in spite of being a week day. L made the traditional ven pongal and chakkarai pongal which was very delicious. We (read “me”) couldn’t wait for the neivedhiyam to be over and wanted to eat it right away. However He had other plans since we didn’t offer it to Him, as for some reason we couldn’t open the cooker. Apparently the safety valve wouldn’t release. It took a lot of iterations from both L and me to finally pry it open before we could eat.
Anyways Happy Pongal to one and all
