How to Make Athirasam - Ariselu

  • Soak the rice in two cups of water for 2 hours.
  • Then drain the excess water and spread it on a clean cotton cloth for 15-20 mins to dry.
  • Now grind the dried rice into a smooth powder.
  • Boil the jaggery in 1/2 cup of water with cardamom powder and sukku powder.
  • Strain the syrup when the jaggery dissolves.
  • Then heat the filtered syrup again until it thickens into a jelly like consistency.
  • Now gradually add the rice flour and knead it into a soft pliable dough.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal balls.
  • Flatten each ball into a thick circle on a greased banana leaf or on a plastic cover.
  • Heat oil in a shallow pan and gently add the flattened ball into the hot oil.
  • Fry over low heat till both sides are crisp and dark golden brown in colour.
