The festival is dedicated to the Hindu sun god Surya and Sankranti marks the end of the winter season and the journey to the north. The name Pongal festival is derived from the formal Pongal, which means to boil or overflow.

Pongal is traditionally prepared in pottery decorated with leaves, flowers or kolam artefacts. On some occasions people cook it at community places. This dish is first offered to the deities. The sweet variety of Pongal, called Sakkara Pongal, is distributed as prasad pongak.
