A scrumptious jar snack made with common everyday ingredients, Seedai is an all-time favourite in South Indian .
The dainty ball shape makes this deep-fried jar snack very popular among kids, and it is made without fail during Janmashtami !
The right mix of urad flour and rice flour gives the Seedai an exciting crunch, while ingredients like black sesame and coconut add to the taste.
Be careful with the amount of butter because less of it will make your Seedai hard while more of it will make it chewy. Seedai also takes a little extra time to prepare as you need to fry it on a slow flame. But, it is totally worth the effort.
