Akkaravadisal Recipe / Akkara Adisil Recipe

Actually i wanted to post this recipe before krishna jayanthy but i didn't get time to make it. But i made this on krishna jayanthy and i took pics of it. So here i am sharing you the recipe so you can make it for another upcoming festival. Mean while you can check out my sweet pongal recipe and kalkandu pongal recipe(this one is my fav)

This is not the traditional way of making this dish. The traditional recipe calls for jaggery. I will share that recipe soon.I used sugar in this recipe and it turned out so tasty. Also the little saffron added in this makes it so flavourful and exotic..

I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Soaking Time : 30 mins

Wash rice and dal together and soak them for 30 mins. Soak saffron in 1 tblspn of milk.

Now take a heavy bottom pan, add in a tsp of ghee. Add the soaked drained rice and dal and fry for few mins.
