Adirasam Sweet:
This is one of the famous sweet of South India, prepared for the special occasion Diwali, the festival of lights and Janmashtami. I have always loved Adirasam sweet, its one of my most favorite ever since my childhood. It’s a rich, sumptuous, mouth watering delicacy. It contains high calorie and protein. Try out this simple recipe...eat and enjoy the very delicious tasty sweet Adirasam.

  2. Hy Dear,
    Thanks for your motivating words!
    Sukku (Chukku) is dry ginger & one of the ayurvedic medicine available at all Indian stores. We are adding this to Adirasam sweet, coz of its medicinal property ( for quick digestion) and awesome flavor. Try it and Enjoy:))

  9. HI,
    YOU HAVE MENTIONED - When the jaggery water comes to thick consistency.
    DO YOU MEAN ONE THREAD CONSISTENCY FOR JAGGERY SYRUP. PLS CLARIFY.
    RAJI.

  10. Yes Raji, the jaggery water should come to one thread consistency ie. kambi paagu in tamil.
    If you put a small drop of thickened jaggery in water, it shouldn't dissolve and it should remain solid in it. That's the perfect consistency to mix in rice flour.
