Seeppu Seedai - A Chettinad snack. Raw rice - 4 cups Urad dhal flour - 1 ½ cups ( udad dhal lightly dry roasted, powdered fine & sieved ) Coconut - 1 cup Ghee - 4 tsp Wash rice, soak for 1 hr, drain & spread on a cloth to dry in the shade. Powder in the mixie till fine. Dry roast it in a low fire till it becomes like “sand” ! – you should be able to draw line with it. Mix rice flour, urad dhal flour, & ghee. Take milk from coconut by adding warm water to the same. Take about 2 ½ cups of milk, if it is not sufficient, you can add some boiling water. Boil this milk with salt, add to flour mixture & knead well . Press in the seepu seedai achu into a long strip, cut into pieces of even length & fry 10 – 15 in hot oil at a time till well done. Remove to kitchen tissue, cool & store. My Chettiar friend helped me do this & the photo is posted below.
