  7. hi i have one doubt for urnd vadai can i grind it in mixy

  8. Gayu- Yes, you can grind in mixie

  9. hai! first of all thank u for this blog. it is very useful and excellent. i have tried many things and taken tips also.But i am commenting now only. In the preparation of appam u have written to add grated jaggery to the batter then if there is some impurity in jaggery then? Earlier i used to dissolve jaggery in little water and add to the batter. can u suggest something about this. i do not get soft appams. thank u and wishing u happy janmasthami. all the v ery best to u.

  10. Latha - I buy pure organic jaggery for it,so there will not be impurities. You cah dissolve the jaggery in very less water and then add to the batter. If you follow the recipe as such, you will get soft appams. You can also add a pinch of cooking soda.

  11. thank u soooooo muuuuuuch this time gokulashtami is going to be a grand celebrations

  12. Hiiiii, I had a doubt.. I tried the vellaiya seedai and uppu seedai for krishna jayanthi.. but uppu seedai became soft and was not crispy whereas when I took from the oil it sounded crackling and seemed hard. And the vellaiya seedai when I made medium balls and put in the oil it started to split. So the round shape didn't retain at all. May I know what's my mistake?
    Thank you so much. Your blog s really lovely!

    1. The temperature of the oil is very important. It should not be too low or high.
