Vella Seedai Preparation
Preparation of rice flour
Urad dal flour
Rice flour – 1 cup prepared in the manner as said above and sieved.
Urad dal flour – 1 tsp
Jaggery – 1/2 cup (grated)
Cardamom -2-3 powdered
Ghee – 2 tsp
White Sesame seeds (ellu) – 2 tsp
Fresh coconut bits – 1 tbsp +1 tsp (optional)
When they turn golden brown (see the color of the seedai below- a shade next to golden brown), remove it from the oil with a slotted ladle and put it on a paper towel or colander to drain off the excess oil.
Once it cools, it will become hard.
Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
Tips for beginners – Add water just to cover or soak the jaggery. Less water the better. Add jaggery water little at a time and make a dough. If you add too much water, you cannot make a ball, so take care while adding jaggery water. If you find that the jaggery water is not enough to make the dough, keep lukewarm water with you, so that if required, you can use it to make the dough. The dough should not be too stiff nor too loose. I have shown picture wise description so that you can have better understanding.
