Ingredients to make Adhirasam:
Raw Rice 1 Cup
Jaggery 1 Cup
Coconut Small Piece Chopped
cardamom Powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Cooking Oil 1/4 Litre for deep frying
Adhirasam Preparation Method:
# Soak the rice for 30mins and rinse it in water and grind the rice in a mixer to a nice powder.
# Add jaggery in a pan with 1/2 cup of water and when it dissolves it water take it and strain the jaggery water to avoid sand.
# Again boil the jaggery water and keep stirring it until the jaggery comes to stone consistency. This means when we take a drop of jaggery juice and pour it in water, it should not dissolve rather we should be able to make a ball out of it.
# Now remove the jaggery from flame and add to the wet rice powder and mix it well along with cardamom powder. Now the adhirasam mixture is ready for preparation.
# Keep this adhirasam mixture aside for at least one day.
# The next day, heat required oil in a heavy bottomed pan.
# Make a small ball of the adhirasam mixture and place it in a oil greased plastic paper. Spread the mixture like vadai and drop it in oil once the oil is hot.
# Deep fry the adhirasam till it becomes golden color.
# Repeat the above steps for the rest of mixture.
# The Delicious Adhirasam is ready for Neivedhyam for Thirukarthigai/Karthigai deepam as well as for serving.
