Adirasam.. when I first read the name I thought it might be some Rasam.. but to my surprise it was a sweet.. 🙂 Thanks to Divya’s SNC Event that I came across this recipe.. Also thanks to Yashodha for the fabulous recipe.


Preparation Time:- 1-2 hrs |  Cooking Time:– 15 mins |  Serves:- 10-15 pieces


  • 2 cups Rice (raw)
  • 1 cup Jaggery (Gud)
  • 1 tea spoon Cardamom Powder (Elaichi Powder)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 5-6 tea spoon Milk
  • 1-2 tea spoon Ghee


Soak rice for 1 or 2 hours. Drain it from water.

Do not dry it completely, it should be damp. Grind it into powder and should be neither coarse nor fine.

Add jaggery and water in the heavy bottomed vessel. Allow them to boil.

Add cardamom powder and allow the syrup should be thicker which is in one string consistency.

Remove it from the stove. After few minutes add rice flour slowly and stir well until you get soft dough. It should be in the consistency of chapatthi dough. Stir continuously while adding flour. Don’t add flour at a time.

While mixing rice flour, if you wish you can add ghee for good taste.

Heat oil for deep fry. Take a plastic paper or aluminium foil or banana leaf and apply oil on it.

Take small lemon sized dough and keep it on the greased foil. Dip your fingers in the oil and flatten the dough.

Take the flatten dough out from the foil and drop gently into the heated oil. Fry both the sides until it should be brown.

Remove adhirasam from the oil and squeeze the excess oil by pressing flat bottomed bowl on the adhirasam.

  • Adirasam is a sweet delicacy and can be cooked for any festivity.. 🙂

Tasty Cooking..!!

  1. Sheelu ji -this Adirasam of the South of Bharat is the ANAARASA of the North of Bharat.And ingredients are the same too with perhaps a little variation.
    यदि आप मुक्त बुद्धि व स्पष्ट दृष्टि से देखें तो आपको भारत के सभी क्षेत्रों व प्रान्तों को जोडता हुआ एक बहुमूल्य,अद्वितीय व पवित्र स्रोत सम्पूर्ण भारत में बहता हुआ दिखेगा।
    हम सब भारतीय लोग चाहे उत्तर,दक्षिण,पूर्व या पश्चिम में जन्में हों, चाहे कोई भी भाषा बोलें हमारी एक ही संस्कृति है और संसार की सबसे पुरातन संस्कृत देवभाषा से ही हमारी अनेक भाषाओं की उत्पत्ति हुई है।
    धर्म,संस्कार व रीत-रिवाज व खान-पान हमारे सब एक हैं और इन्हीं से हम आदिकाल से बन्धें हुएँ हैं।
    आज की युवा पीढ़ी आधुनिकता के मायावी दौड़ में अपने अस्तित्व से बिछड़ न जाएँ!


      • Thanks for your prompt and sweet acknowledgement!
        The reason was just to showcase that we as Indians have so much in common and due to vagaries of history and petty prejudices our people have lost out on the ‘deeper connection’ we had as the people of Bharat.
        Television,news and other media also are systematically corroding and eroding ‘the grand thread of Unity’ existing in our nation.
        You may again wonder as to why my expressions are again returning to history,news and politics!
        This is because today we are forgetting the fact that we come from that Bharat which is the ‘cradle of civilization’.Today our Dharma is under direct attack (by systematic conversion of Hindus) and our ancient Samskriti is systematically being destroyed from ‘within’ by ‘a white agent in cohorts with the most voluntarily impotent person’ to have come into power with others who are just washing their hands in the flowing waters of the Ganga.
        So young people have to awaken to our greatness and unite for making Bharat great again!
        How? By remembering at every step that you are what not only by what you eat but also by using that ‘energy’ -अन्नम् परब्रह्मम्- (not only for the pleasure of eating and staying healthy) but in performing यज्ञ कर्म for our समाजिक जागृति एवम् समस्त भारत।
        By taking an active interest in day to day politics because this will affect our children of tomorrow!And speaking out wherever necessary!
