Ariselu/ Aathirasallu/ Athirasams were chosen for the Indian Cooking Challenge for February-March 2010. As with every challenge two tried recipes were given. I chose to go with the first recipe which you may read in Srivalli's blog. I skip writing the recipe all over.
I tried with just 200 grams of rice. The jaggery I used was very yielding, so I reduced the quantity to 125 grams (as against the 150 grams given in her original recipe). The result was six pieces of super delicious athirasams. The addition of sesame seeds and cooking poopy seeds are optional.
I would love to try the second recipe at some point of time.
I follow the recipe as posted earlier which works fine for me, yet I would love this for a back up; and that is what the Indian Cooking Challenge is all about - giving better working recipes that can be easily followed by most of us.
