Rava Uppu Seedai

If you want to try out different crispy uppu seedais for Krishna Jayanthi celebration, you have to give a trial to this crunchy munchy rava uppu seedai..Usually we used to make seedais with rice flour and urad dal, here in this rava seedai you can very well skip the urad dal completely and rava will give a fabulous crunchy texture to this seedais, definitely a real twist to our usual seedais..Take care not to fry the rolled balls immediately,leave them for half an hour in room temperature and fry them in hot oil, your seedais wont explose and they will definitely turn super crispy..You need loads of patience for making this tiny crispy beauties to get a better final result..Give a try friends..


1cup Rice flour (sieved)
1cup Roasted rava (fine)
1tbsp Butter
1tsp Sesame seeds
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Take the sieved rice flour,fine roasted rava,salt,butter in a bowl, mix everything well with a fingers until they turns crumble like texture,add the sesame seeds,cumin seeds,give a mix..Now slowly sprinkle water and turn as a soft and stiff dough..Keep aside for half an hour..

Roll out tiny balls from the dough (if your dough is prefect,you doesnt even need oil for rolling),arrange the rolled tiny balls over a paper towel and keep aside for half an hour before frying..

Heat oil for deepfrying, drop gently enough balls and fry until they turns golden brown,fry them in small batches,drain the excess of oil in a paper towel..Arrange in an air tightened box and enjoy..

Love the addition of rava.There is something new about all your posts. You should write a cookbook, don't reveal your creative ideas like this.

I am trying to make seedai for the first time. My mom is more tensed than I am. She says be careful with the baby.It will burst and all that. I am going to make seedai for a dinner party on Janmashtami. Wish me luck Priya!!!

Swathi said... Reply To This Comment

I tried and it came out very well. I used 1/2 cup of oats (powdered) and 1/2 cup of rava instead of one cup of rava.
