Arisi Vella Puttu/Rice Jaggery Puttu is traditional sweet of South India made during the period of Navratri, especially on Navratri Friday. It is made of steamed rice flour along with jaggery. Generally, this is made with homemade rice flour. We are going to make this in an easy way using the store bought puttu flour.
This recipe was given by my friend Deepa Sundar. Most of the traditional recipes which I am sharing here are given by her. To make perfect arisi vella puttu following steps are to be taken care. Rice flour (I used ready made puttu flour) should be dry roasted till it comes to sand consistency. That is, you should be able to draw a perfect line using the roasted flour. The roasted flour is tied in a muslin or cotton cloth and steamed for 12-15 minutes. Cool it and then grind the steamed flour in the mixer so that all the lumps are crumbled well. The jaggery syrup should reach ball consistency. If you pour a drop of jaggery in the water, it should not melt. Instead, you should be able to make it as a ball. That is a perfect consistency.
This puttu is usually made at several occasions like Navrathri, Maha Shivratri. At 9 days of Navrathri, each day we offer different types of sundal as Prashad for God. This Arisi Vella Puttu is made on Navrathri Friday as Prashad. Now let us see how to prepare this recipe.
