Uppu Seedai / Salted Seedai


Seedai is a deep fried snack made with rice flour and urad dhal flour.These are specially made for Krishna Jayanthi as Nivedhyam.
I have made Seedais a couple of times at home for they are so easy and a simple snack recipe.I could still remember the first time when I made Seedais ,they turned out like cheese balls so soft and puffed because I have added too much of butter.
As I could make them confidently now,wanted to make a post especially for Krishna Jayanthi as Nivedhyam for Lord Krishna.




1 cup rice flour

2 tbsp urad dhal

2 tbsp grated coconut

2 tbsp butter

1/2 tbsp sesame seeds

Do not make big seedai to avoid uncooked flour inside the seedai.
