  • Drop 10 to 15 seedai per batch by standing a feet away( Just for precaution) But don't scare, this seedai never burst. Do not disturb the seedai in oil till it starts to float on top. Then toss the seedai with a ladle and cook till golden in color uniformly. Keep tossing whenever needed. Flame should be low to medium for uniform cooking else seedai will become dark brown quickly.
  • Remove when the bubbles reduces. Do not wait for the bubbles to stop completely. This seedai becomes slightly bigger in size after frying. It tastes soft when hot. It becomes crunchy when it cool down. Store it after they cool down. Enjoy. It stays good for weeks together.

  • Do not add more cooking soda. Seedai may disperse in oil.
  • Do not make the dough too sticky and loose. Seedai will dissolve in oil.
  • If the dough is too sticky, you can add 1 to 2 tsp more flour to achieve the right texture.
  • After rolling, if the balls flatten, it shows moisture is more in the dough. In that case, roll it again and then drop in oil.
