This dish is a time taking one and needs lot of patience. Believe me when the dish is ready you will feel the efforts were worth taking. I like Anarsa as it is different form the other snack prepared during Special occasions. My mom starts with this recipe first, by soaking the rice, prepares all the other dishes first and finishes with this dish to end the preparation. There are two reasons for this, first is this dish take lot of time for preparation and the other is, it is ready long before the occasion and finishes before the special day arrives….lol
For the people who don’t have so much of time, there is the Anarsa flour that you can get ready made in few Indian stores. You will need to do little bit of search.
