Crispy rice balls (Seedai)
Seedai is a melt-in-the-mouth south-Indian snack, usually prepared for Krishna Jayanthi (Janmashtami), the birthday of Lord Krishna, the Hindu God of love and divine joy. This is perhaps the only Hindu festival celebrated at midnight. I love this festival because it gives me enough time to prepare these delicacies after getting back from work :)


rice flour - 2 cups
urad flour - 2 tbsp
coconut (powdered / ground) - 2/3 cups
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
sesame seeds - 1 tsp
butter - 2 tsp
chilli powder - 2 to 3 tsp (adjust according to taste)
salt - about 1 1/4 tsp (adjust according to taste)
water - about 1 cup


Lightly roast the flour in butter and add all the ingredients. Mix well. Make a stiff dough. Roll out into small round/oblong shapes and deep fry till golden brown. Drain on a kitchen towel, allow to cool and store in an air-tight container.
