Anarse with rice flour and jaggery recipe | Atrasa | Kajjaya

Anarse recipe -The basic ingredient of this sweet is fresh rice flour. Rice flour is prepared in a special way for this sweet. Rice is soaked continuously for three days by changing water each day. On fourth day, drain water and dry the rice under shadow. Make fine flour with this rice and use this rice flour for preparing anarse. Making anarse by using such rice flour makes it crispy and layered. Being fried in ghee, this sweet is high in calories and highly addictive. The poppy seeds adds extra taste and crunchiness to the sweet. Anarse is made during special occasion like Diwali and Ganesh chaturthi festival. Actually I made it during Diwali festival, but I couldn't post it at that time. It came out very well. It was crispy and reasonably sweet. You can add more jaggery if you like a more sweeter version. We all liked it a lot. Do try this anarse and I am sure that you will like it.
