AriseluAriselu is one of the famous sweet recipes of south India, they are prepared during Makar Sankrati. In different parts of India, this recipe is called as Kajjaya, Athirasam. Making use of equal amount of ghee and oil not only gives you exotic smell but also crispy outer and soft inner flavour.

For garnishing we used sesame seeds for this recipe. This is not a instant recipe, we soak rice one day before and make it semi dry and then powder it. From times, it is believed that Ariselu recipe doesn’t effect our body temperature. In south India, especially in villages i have seen people making this recipe during marriages as a sweet treat.
