  • 01

    Wash the rice two to three times and then soak the rice in water for minimum 12 hours.

    Next day drain the rice and spread the rice evenly on a clean cotton cloth for 3-4 hours under the fan.

  • 03

    It should not be kept in the sunlight.

    Finally sieve it through a fine mesh to get a fine powder.

    Meanwhile heat ghee in a frying pan and fry the anarsa in it with poppy seed side up.

  • 12

    Keep pouring the hot ghee in the center of the anarsa with the help of the ladle, so that it gets evenly cooked.

    My tip: Do not dry out the rice too much. The rice should be damp when you grind the rice into powder so that a dough can be made easily with sugar.
