    hi madhavi, i've recently been member in this site.this recipe without coconut is called Paramannam.Actual Chakra Pongal is done by adding fried green gram dal,coconut pieces,cashewnuts,raisins and cardamom powder into half boiled sweet rice and cooking all these together till done.This is usually given as Prasadam in Andhra temples.
