  • How to Make Athirasam - Ariselu:

    3. Now grind the dried rice into a smooth powder.
    4. Boil the jaggery in 1/2 cup of water with cardamom powder and sukku powder.
    5. Strain the syrup when the jaggery dissolves.
    6. Then heat the filtered syrup again until it thickens into a jelly like consistency.

    11. Fry over low heat till both sides are crisp and dark golden brown in colour.
