  • 1 kg - raw rice
  • 3/4 kg - jaggery
  • 1 tsp - cardamom powder
  • 3 tsp - khus khus
  • 1/2 tsp - dry ginger, powdered
  • Oil for deep frying

How to Make Adhirasam

  • Soak rice in water for 2 hours. Drain water and spread rice on a clean cloth to dry.
  • Powder it when it is partly dry. Sieve it to get a fine powder.
  • Heat 1/4 cup of water in a thick bottom pan. Add the jaggery to it.
  • When the jaggery melts, filter it to get rid of the dirt.
  • Then stir the melted jaggery over low heat.
  • After 5 mins, check the consistency by adding a drop of syrup into a cup of water. If it forms a soft ball when picked up, it's the right consistency.
  • Remove from fire and add cardamom powder, dry ginger powder and khus khus.
  • Stir well and add the rice flour to it.
  • Mix well till you get a chapatti-like dough.
  • Leave it overnight.
  • The next day, heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
  • Meanwhile, make small balls of the dough.
  • Spread some oil on a plastic sheet and place the ball on it. Flatten to form small patties.
  • Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.
