Serves: 4
  • Rice flour - 1 cup (150 grams)
  • Jaggery - more than ½ cup (75 grams)
  • Sesame seeds - 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Poppy seeds - 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Ghee - for frying anarsa
  1. Finely crush the jaggery in mortar pestle.
  2. Take sesame seeds and poppy seeds in separate plate to coat the anarsa.
  3. Take rice flour in a big mixing bowl and add finely grind jaggery into it.
  4. Mix really well and knead a smooth and firm dough. You’ll need to mix jaggery in flour for around 6 to 7 minutes.
  5. Now cover the dough and keep aside for 15-20 minutes to set. Keeping the dough for over a day gives spongier anarsa.
  6. Heat enough ghee in a wok or pan to deep fry the anarsa.
  7. Dough is now ready, grease your hands with some ghee and pinch small size dough and roll giving it a round shape.
  8. Dust this dough ball with some sesame seeds and roll back again then flatten it slightly. You can also coat the anarsa with poppy seeds as well.
  9. Now gently slide the anarsa in medium hot ghee for deep frying and fry until golden brown and little crispy from both sides on low flame.
  10. Drain out the fried anarsas on kitchen paper towels to remove excess ghee. Continue making the anarsa until the entire mixture is utilized.
  11. Serve this delectable and delicious anarsa warm and relish eating.
