Yummy Oil Free Athirasam

Athirasam Diwali snack:

Hi athirasam is one of the best traditional South Indian snack usually made during festival seasons. The  doughnut  like pastry has a long history of popularity in Tamil civilization. They are similar in shape to methu vadai, but are not savoury and are eaten as a dessert. It is very healthy dessert..! Usually athirasam will be very oily since they made out of dried soaked rice flour (so it needs to be pressed with a flat bottomed bowl to remove the excess oil),but here i am going to show you oil free athirasam. It is not only oil free, it is also gluten free which is very good for hypo-thyroid patients. It is one which is top in the list when it comes to the matter of Diwali sweet preparations in the Tamilians home.

Let get Started :)
