Recipe of Adhirasam

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Cardamom(Elakka) Powder 1 Teaspoons
Water 1/2 Cup
Jaggery(Sharkkara) Powdered 1 Cup
Rice Flour(Ari Podi) 2 Cup
Ghee 1/2 Teaspoons
Oil To Fry


1)Melt the jaggery in water till it reaches the desired consistency(see test for consistency below).

2)Add cardamom and ghee to the gravy and mix again.

3)Make the mixture into flat patties.

4)Heat oil in a pan.

5)Deep fry the patties in oil.

Test for the right consistency :

1)If you put a little melted jaggery in a little water, it should roll up into a soft ball.

2)If you hit the ball on the vessel, it should produce a metallic sound.

3)Immediately turn the stove off and pour it on the flour.

4)Mix well. It`ll become a thick gravy.

5)Even if the gravy is watery, it will harden eventually on stirring.

Some tips :

1)The whole deep frying process should be done on low heat.

2)The gravy can be refrigerated in an air-tight container and can be used for making fresh adhirasams for about a week`s time.

First we need to soak rice for about 6 hours and then powder them in a dry mixi....then add jaggery and one cup of water and bring it to boil in the meantime be checking the jaggery....put a drop of the boiling jaggery in water in a plate and see if it forms a ball....after that is done mix slowly jaggery and rice flour and then add elachi...leave for few minutes and then keep a plastic paper and puit some oil in that and put the mixture and press it gently to form a round shape and fry it in oil and after frying squeeze the adhirsam ....this is done by keeping it between two small containers and pressing...
