Sweet delicacies are known to be stapled in Tamil Tradition, right from Sangam Era. One such South Indian delicacy is Adhirasam.
Recorded during King Krishnadevaraya’s reign between 1509-1529, Adhirasam, noted in the inscription which mentioned recipes includes rice flour, jaggery, butter and pepper.
Though white sugar is being used these days, palm sweets (jaggeries) were more sought during Sangam era as it was healthier, cleaner and easier to produce. These organic sugars offer a healthier option as it’s easier to digest and absorb in one’s system.
Adhirasam offered a healthier balance of food where it’s the right mixture of spices and sweet. Even in food groups, sweet is an important aspect and the Tamil culture identified the need for sugar in one’s system to function optimally.
