Raw rice-1 & 1/2 cups
(I used sona masoori rice)
Jaggery-1 cup
(dark variety/pagu vellam)
Water-1 cup
Dry ginger powder-2pinch
Cardamom powder-1/4tsp
Sesame seeds-1tbsp
Oil-to deep fry 

Wash & soak the rice for 2 hours.Then drain the water & spread it on a clean towel for 30 minutes.
While still wet grind it in 2 batches to a very fine powder in a mixi.Sieve the flour to remove any grains.
Always keep the flour covered otherwise it will leave the moisture & become dry.To this add the sesame seeds, cardamom & dry ginger powder & keep it ready.
Heat a pan pour water & dissolve the jaggery,filter to remove any impurities. Now get back to the stove & heat the diluted jaggery till it reach to a soft ball consistency( take water in a small plate,drop the syrup in water. With your fingers try to make a soft ball out of it,then this is the right consistency) switch off the stove.
Pour this jaggery liquid into the rice flour mixture & mix to make a soft dough.
Once cool,cover & keep it overnight in a closed container.
Next day divide the dough into small balls,grease a plastic sheet with ghee & press a ball to a semi thick disc.
Heat oil in a pan & in medium high flame fry these adhirasam both sides till light golden brown.
Remove it from oil & press it by keeping it in between 2 ladle to remove excess oil as you see in the picture.
Store it on a air tight container.
If your dough becomes hard,before making adhirasam add 1 or 2 tsp of milk.Knead it well & then make.
Add jaggery liquid little by little,the consumption of jaggery depends upon the quality of rice.
Keep the dough overnight at room temperature.
Rice flour should be very smooth,sieve it well.
Poppy seeds can be used instead of sesame seeds.
Do not flatten the adhirasam very thin,otherwise while frying it becomes crisp or break.
Flip immediately once it rises in oil.Do not deep fry till brown,otherwise your adhirasam will become hard.
