KAAPARISI RECIPE | A TRADITIONAL SWEET

Kaaparisi Kaaprisi is a traditional sweet made in our home during the naming ceremony of the new born child . Generally we do the Punyavachanam (naming ceremony) for the baby on the 11th day from the day it is born. Kaaparisi we make and give for all ladies along with the haldi kumkum (vettathallai pakku). This is made with rice and jaggery which has a crispy texture, roasted dal and coconuts adds extra taste to this. During my India trip i asked my mom for the recipe and  she instructed me the method and i made this kaaparisi under my mom's supervision.
