Ariselu or Arisa is an Indian sweet from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Odisha. It has different names in different states like Kajjaaya in Kannada, Anarsa in Marathi, Anarsa in Bihar, and Adhirasam in Tamil Nadu. It is a traditional sweet during the festival of " Sankranthi | Pongal ". The main ingredients used to prepare this recipe are Rice Flour, Jaggery, Ghee | Oil.

For this recipe people use to take the ration rice which is thick and fat rice, this makes the arisa with perfect texture and taste. To prepare arisa, ration rice has to be washed and soaked in water overnight or for about 12 hours and removed and adding fresh water every 8 hours. After soaking the rice, rice water has to be strained. Leave the rice in the strainer for about 15 minutes. Then spread the rice in a clean cloth and dry it till the moisture leaves. Here, we have to be careful because the rice should not be completely dry. Rice has to be dried but yet should have moisture in it. Usually, this rice is taken to the mill to make the powder but, here am using the mixy to make the powder. Rice has to be blended with very fine powder and should sieve the powder twice.

Making the powder in the mill and doing it with the milled rice flour makes the arisa taste super. There will be separate mills,s especially on these days during the festival. After sieving, if you get the rice granules, keep them aside and use this for doing rice flour upma.

And the important step is to make the jaggery syrup. This syrup should be done very carefully because if the syrup is not done correctly, we will not get perfect arisa and arisa will separate as soon as we put in oil.
