Ariselu / Aathirasallu For ICC

Remember Mahmud of Ghazni who suceeded after 17 times to conquer, my case was almost the same in making the Ariselu for ICC. Tried it more than a couple of times, failed and suceeded today atlast in making Ariselu. Since this was my first challenge in ICC, I didnt want to fail in making the Ariselu. I followed the recipe 2 coz the recipe 1 got flopped. The method of preparation was easy  and I added the sesame seeds in the dough itself as I had a doubt whether it would be succesful. It was very tasty and couldnt resist eating. Sending this to Srivalli's ICC- Ariselu for Feb 2010

Ingredients Needed :

Rice Flour - 1 glass (standard measurement)
Jaggary - 1/2 glass
Coconut grated - 2 tsp
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Water - 1/2 glass
Sesame seeds - 1 tbsp
Oil for deep frying.

Method to prepare:

Dissolve the jaggery in water. Cook on high and remove the scum. Then add the cardamom powder. Once it starts boiling, add the grated coconut. You will see lot of bubbles coming out.
At this stage, add the Rice flour slowly and stir it together well. When the consistency is correct, stop adding the flour, but I used up almost the entire glass of flour
You can store and use whenever you want. If it becomes too hard, just add about 2 tsp of water along with 2 tsp of sugar. Get it to boil, while you keep stirring it. The mix should become soft again. When you handle it, it should come together as a soft dough. Divide it to equal balls.
Heat a kadai with oil to deep fry these. In a greased plastic sheet, pat them down to equal sized discs. Press down the sesame seeds over the top. Once the oil is hot, gently drop these into them. Fry on both sides. Since the sesame seeds are just pressed over the top, they will get into the oil. If you want to avoid this, try adding to the dough.
Once they are golden brown, remove and drain them on a kitchen towel.They will be soft when you remove them, will become crunchy once they are cooled.
The regular ones are normally soft and oily, but these were crunchy and no oil at all!
