  1. Hi
    sugar adhirasam (white sugar or raw cane sugar /brown sugar) try this way once… no syrup consistency fear!!! simple… take 1 cup of raw rice
    – procedure same for preparing rice flour. Take half cup of sugar – not powdered, as it is mix
    with the “little moist” rice flour for 2 – 3 minutes using a spoon or ladle, leave it covered
    overnight. Next day using your hands mix the dough which would by now resemble like chappathi
    dough. If need, repeat, only if there is a need and you feel the dough is very stiff, use half or 1
    spoon of HOT water and gently knead and then deep fry them as usual!!!
