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

For garnishing, we used sesame seeds for this recipe. This is not an instant recipe, we have to soak rice one day before and make it semi dry and then powder it. From times, people believe that Ariselu recipe/ Kajjaya Recipe or Athirasam doesn’t affect our body temperature.
