UPPU SEEDAI

HOW TO MAKE UPPU SEEDAI
INGREDIENTS:

Rice flour - 2 cups
Urad dhal - 2 tsp.
White sesame seeds/jeera - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Scraped coconut - 4 tsp. (optional)
Hing 1/4 tsp.
Butter - 50 gms
Coconut oil- 2 cups(for deep frying)

METHOD:

Prepare rice flour and urad dhal powder as said in this link.

In a pan, slightly heat the rice flour. Mix rice flour, urad dhal powder, and sieve well for 2 or 3 times. Now add salt, hing, sesame seeds, coconut, and butter and mix well adding water little by little to make a firm dough.

Make small balls from the dough and spread it on a clean, white cloth.

Heat oil and add the seedais to it. Gently turn it and fry till bubbling and hissing sound from oil reduces.

NOTES AND TIPS TO MAKE SEEDAIS WITHOUT BURSTING:

Make sure that there is no mud or dust in the coconut, flour, sesame seeds, jeera and salt.

Ensure multiple sieving. It is better to dissolve salt and hing in water and strain it and use. In the same manner clean sesame seeds, jeera and other items also.

If coconut is added, shelf life decreases.

Coconut oil enhances the taste, but can use other edible oil also.
