Seedai Recipe | Rice Flour Recipes | Video Recipe

              Seedai- a crispy,deep fried snack made with rice flour,roasted gram flour as the main ingredients.There are different seedai,like maida seedai,inippu seedai,uppu seedai.My grand ma is an expert in making seedai.The seedai she makes are perfect crunchy with perfect colour.We used to munch them for breakfast,lunch and dinner.I can't match hers in crunchiness but tried up to my level.Grand ma used to grind the rice but i made seedai with store bought rice flour(not to take risk hehehe).You can prepare your own rice flour,See my idiyappam post to make rice flour at home.

          Seedai are considered to be dangerous snack(some body might have experienced it).Rarely it happens to me, because of the tips given by grand ma and my mom.Detailed note of the tips at the end of this post.

        Make small and even size balls to get perfect crunchy seedai.I wanted a good colour ,so took it out little early .The outside was perfect crunchy and inside was little soft.Fry more time to enjoy a full crunchy seedai.You can add sesame seeds,but i never added it.So this Krishna jayanthy/janmashtami make this quick seedai and get the blessings of lord Krishna.

  • Make all the balls similar size ,so fried evenly.
  • Amount of the batch should be equal to oil amount .
  • You can roll the balls in oval shape or round shape.oval ones are better.
To avoid bursting/oil spills:
  • Sieve both the flours completely.
  • Keep the dough moist(cover with a cloth).
  • Try to drop the batch at the same time.This keeps the oil temperature down so the oil won't spill/burst.
