Kara seedai one of the main recipe prepared during Krishna Jayanthi or gokulashtami and offered to lork Krishna. Most of the people avoid doing this kara seedai in fear of that the seedai balls may burst during deep fry. So they just buy from shop and offer the god. But I will teach you the tips and tricks to avoid bursting of seedai. It is 100% guaranteed steps to follow while preparing seedai.
The main ingredients used to prepare seedai is rice flour, urad dal flour, butter, chilly powder, sesame seeds, grated coconuts, hing and salt. My MIL prepared rice flour at home I used that flour to prepare seedai you can also buy rice flour at shop. She just soak raw rice in water for 3-4 hours dry it by spreading rice on a Cotton cloth under a fan and take it to mill for grinding. If not grind in a mixie and sieve properly to get a fine powder.
Urad dal flour I just dry roasted it and grind in a mixie and sieved to get a fine powder. Sieving is the one of the first tips to avoid bursting seedai. Sieving removes any impurities or it just breaks the lumps in the flour.after making dough shape balls into a round shape but need not be perfect. If you press hard air blocks will make seedai to burst. Place the seedai balls on a paper to absorb excess water and dry it under a fan for atleast 10 mins. And before frying put a hole on it with a toothpick. Or just drop one by one in oil with the help of a toothpick. Fry in medium flame do not forget to preheat oil before frying. Fry seedai in batches till light brown color. Cool down to room temperature to get crispy seedai balls.
