Ariselu / Athirasam

Hello friends. Back with another edition of Blogging Marathon. For the first week I choose to cook
Traditional Dishes. Made Ariselu for this year's Kartika Pournami. Could not make the perfect ariselu but the taste was very good. Will update the perfect pic when i make them again. Here goes the recipe

We need:

Rice 2 cups
Jaggery 1 cups
Ghee 4sps
Oil for deep frying
Elachi powder 1/4 sp


Soak rice over night and drain the water.
Let the rice dry for 30minutes.
Now make a fine powder wiht the rice.
Meanwhile heat pan and add grated jaggery and 1/4 cup water.
Add elachi powder.
The syrup has to be 1 string consistancy.
Remove form heat and add rice flour little at a time and mix well.
Finally add ghee and mix well.
Heat oil for deep frying.
Take a plastic apply little oil or ghee to the plastic sheet.
Take  small size dough made with rice flour and jaggery.
Press with ur fingers firmly to make a round pattie.

I couldnot make the perfect ariselu but the taste was awesome.
