Pulagam is a very very simple dish made in Andhra Pradesh for festivals. It is made with rice and split green gram (chilkewali moong). It is different from Katte Pongali or Ven Pongal in the sense that it has no tempering of any kind, just salt as seasoning. Also, while Katte Pongali is mashed and slightly liquidy, Pulagam has the same consistency as steamed rice.
With Sankranti round the corner, I thought this would be an apt post.
