Significance of Kaappuarisi:

Kaapparisi is one of the most traditional sweets that I grew up eating every year that amma makes for aadi perukku. It takes just 4 to 5 ingredients to make this kaaparisi but perfection comes with practice and a little skill. I tried when I was newly married that time it came very sticky. Got the tips from Amma and tried came out very well. Recently made for a seemandham thambolam. I was thinking to share this recipe for a long today here it is. Not only for aadi perukku, seemandam, valaikkaipu, kaathu kutthu, but you can also make this all the occasions and give it as a thamboolam for ladies. As this will stays good for 2 to 3 days in room temperature you can make previous day itself and give also.

A short Video of Making Kaaparisi perfectly:

Kaappu Arisi(Kaapparisi Ingredients):

1 cup Raw rice (I used sona masoori Pacharisi rice)

3/4 cup jaggery (grate the jaggery measure and use)

1/4 cup roasted Chana dal(pottukadalai)

1/4 cup coconut chunks 

2 tbsp sesame seeds(you can use white sesame seeds too)

1/4 tsp cardamom powder 

1/4 tsp dry ginger powder

1 tsp ghee


Take 1 cup of raw rice, wash, and rinse well. soak it for 30 mins. After 30 mins, drain the water and let it be in the colander for 2 mins. Now spread the rice on a clean cloth and let it dry. Dry well at least for an hour so that the rice should stick on your hands is the right stage. Now transfer it to a bowl and keep it aside.

Now heat a pan add a tsp ghee, add the coconut bits, and roast well, till it turns light golden on low flame. Once the coconut turns golden add the roasted chana dal, and sesame seeds and roast them, till the sesame seeds pop. Now switch off the heat and transfer them into a plate.

Heat a pan and add 3/4 cup of jaggery and 3 tbsp water, let the jaggery dissolve in water. Add 1/4 tsp cardamom powder, 1/4 tsp dry ginger powder, mix well and make thick jaggery syrup on low flame. once the jaggery syrup started to thicken, check the consistency. If you drop a little syrup on water you can able to roll a soft jelly kinda ball. The ball should be soft, not hardball.

This is the right stage you can switch off the stove & start adding the rice, and roasted ingredients, and mix well, making sure the syrup is coated well with the rice. That’s it kaaparisi is ready to offer God as Neivedyam or you can pack them and give as Thamboolam.
