How to Make Sugar Athirasam

  • Soak the rice in water for 2 hours. Drain the water and spread the rice on a clean cloth to dry. Powder the partly dry rice with sukku and cardamom.
  • Sieve it to get a fine powder.
  • Add 1/4 cup water in a thick bottom pan.
  • Add the sugar and boil.
  • When sugar melts after 5 mins, check the consistency by pouring the syrup in a cup of water. It should roll into a soft ball. This is the right consistency.
  • Remove from the fire and add the rice flour.
  • Stir well till you get a chappathi-like dough.
  • Make small balls of the dough, spread some oil on the plate, place the ball on it to form small puris.
  • Deep-fry in hot oil until it is golden in colour.
