How to make ADHIRASAM

  1. For Homemade Rice flour -
  2. Soak the raw rice for half an hour.
  3. Drain the water and dry it in SHADE on a clean muslin cloth.
  4. Once its 3/4 th dry powder it in a mixie (it should be slightly coarse)
  5. Sieve the flour and set aside.
  6. For Adhirasam -
  7. Grate the Jaggery in a vegetable grater .
  8. Dissolve it in 1/4 cup water bring it to a boil .
  9. Strain it to remove the impurities and again put on the heat.
  10. Boil the Jaggery until you get soft ball consistency. To check the consistency keep a bowl of water ready once it crosses the two string stage keep adding drops of Jaggery into the water until you get round soft ball that's the consistency.
  11. Now immediately add the slightly wet processed Rice flour and swiftly mix everything.
  12. The dough should be slightly add the rice flour accordingly.
  13. Close the vessel with a lid and set aside for 24 hours or atleast overnight.
  14. Next day take lemon sized balls of the dough and place it on a greased Ziploc bag or Plantain leaf and make thick poori shape.
  15. Heat oil in a kedai.
  16. Once the oil is hot slow the flame and gently slide the Adhirasam into the oil and cook it until you get golden brown colour and till the oil stops bubbling by gently flipping on both sides.
  17. Immediately keep the Adhirasam in between the Adhirasam presser and press gently to squeeze the excess oil. If you don't have the presser you can press it in between two flat head laddles.
  18. Now place eachAdhirasam separately in a wide plate until it cools.
  19. Store it in a dry airtight container by placing clean twigs at the bottom and arranging the Adhirasam on top of it.(this is a very traditional method of storing to remove excess oil)or you can store it normally.

My Tip:

Use only Paagu vellam(Jaggery). The rice flour should be slightly wet while adding to the Jaggery syrup. The dough should rest for minimum 24 hours then only the Adhirasam will be flavourful.
