10 Lines on Pongal in English

 

Pongal is a traditional harvest festival celebrated in India.

Pongal is a harvest festival observed mainly in Tamil Nadu state in South India. On this day farmers celebrate the end of the harvesting season.

Farmers offer prayers to their Gods and give thanks for the bountiful harvest.

The word ‘Pongal’ means ‘boiled rice’. Rice is the staple food of the people of Tamil Nadu.

In fact, the entire southern region of India is known as the ‘land of rice’.

In the past, the Pongal festival was held once a year. But now it is being celebrated twice a year.

During these two festivals, the farmers make special dishes using rice. These dishes are prepared only during these two festivals.

There are many varieties of dishes prepared using rice. The dish is prepared using rice flour mixed together with coconut milk.

Coconut milk is added to the rice flour before mixing. Then, the mixture is cooked until it thickens.

These dishes are offered to God and family members.
