Vella seedai is must sweet for Janmashtami. For me, preparation of Vella seedai is always tricky. Here is the tip for best vella seedai.

  • While shaping seedai marbles don’t press them tight.
  • All ingredients must be also free from impurities.
  • The dough should be moist and non-sticky.

  • Heat the rice flour in pan. Let the color start changing to brown (take off flame when the color just starts changing. Don’t let it become fully brown). Spread on a newspaper and let it cool.
  •  Dry fry the urudh dhal in a pan. Let the color change, switch off the stove. Keep aside for cooling. Make it a nice powder in a mixie. Keep aside. (If you using readymade Urdh flour, dry fry it for one minute).
  • Dry fry the coconut and til for a minute. Keep aside.
  • In a kadai, add the water and the jaggery, Heat it.   As soon as all the jaggery melts, switch off the gas.
  • Strain it using a steel strainer to remove dirt in jaggery. Let the jaggery water cool down.
  •  Take a bowl, mix rice flour, Urdh dhal flour, Elachi powder, til (ellu), coconut, coconut oil and ghee . Use a whisk to gently bring all the ingredients together. 
  • Now add the mixed flour little by little and keep stirring. Add flour till the dough consistency is such that you can make round balls. Cover it and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  •  After 30 minutes, with your hands make a soft ball and put it on the newspaper.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a kadai. Keep the flame on medium low.
  • Add the balls to the oil once heated from the side of the kadai. Do not throw it into oil.
  • When the seedai has fried a little, turn it over using a long handled spoon so that it gets fried evenly on all sides. Wait till color changes to a little dark brown and take it out.
  • Put it in a vessel and drain the excess oil.
  • Vella seedai ready to Offer to Lord Sri Krishna as neivedhayam.
