Jaggery Adhirasam

Note

  • When the processing of melting the jaggery, take little bit of melted jaggery and put it into water. If it is not broken that is right time to add rice flour
  • Instead of Jaggery use sugar for another variant of Adhirasam.

Tip

  • If the mixture is too sticky roll it over on the rice flour if the mixture is too hard mix hot milk on the mixture
