Beginners Dough Repairing Tips Always reserve 1/4 cup jaggery syrup and flour to adjust consistency later. You don't have rice flour and the batter is gooey do add instant rice flour OR Stir the adhirasam batter over stove in low flame for a while without burning the dough (this step definitely works). Make sure it sits on room temperature for 8 hours at least before deep fry. You can store the Athirasam dough in an air tight container in refrigerator for more than a month. When you are about to deep fry take the dough as needed keep it out at room temperature for 1 hour at least. If the dough is too hard add few drops of milk, mix it and make balls, flat it round, then fry them in oil as mentioned above.
