    Ingredients

    The following are the ingredients needed for preparing Chettinad Seedai,

    • Raw rice - 2 cups
    • Urad dal - 1/2 cup
    • Roasted gram dal - 2 tablespoons
    • Butter / ghee - 2 tablespoons
    • Coconut milk - 1 cup

    Preparation Steps

    Rice flour : 

    1. Soak two cups of raw rice in water for around one or two hours.
    2. Spread and dry soaked rice on a white cloth under room temperature for 15 - 30 minutes. 
    3. Grind the rice into a fine flour and sieve well.
    4. Slightly dry roast the rice flour for a few minutes to remove moisture, sieve again and keep it aside.

    Coconut milk : 

    1. Take a cup of grated pulp of coconut, sprinkle water and grind into paste.
    2. Add this paste to a strainer and take coconut milk. 
    3. Heat the coconut milk for a few minutes. Do not boil.

    To prepare Chettinad Seedai dough :

    1. Dry roast urad dal only for a few minutes and grind coarsely.
    2. In the same jar, add roasted gram dal and grind well into a fine powder.
    3. Sieve and transfer it to a bowl. To this, add rice flour and mix them well.
    4. Add butter, black sesame seeds, salt and hot coconut milk to the flour.
    5. Mix the contents well with a ladle and when it is warm enough to touch knead it to a soft, smooth and non sticky dough with hands.

    To prepare Chettinad Seedai :

    1. Slightly grease the murukku maker, use the disc/ press for Seepu Seedai (single hole one with stripes) and fill in the dough.
    2. In a cutting board or any plate squeeze the dough into long strips/tapes.
    3. Cut the strips into equal sized small strips of around 10 cms length each.
    4. Alternatively, you can flatten the dough on the countertop, with an unused comb draw the stripes on the dough and then cut it into small strips.
    5. Take a strip and, using the index finger, fold like a ring and seal the ends to form a cylindrical shape.
    6. Repeat the process for remaining dough and it is ready to fry.
    7. In a pan, pour oil and heat at high flame.
    8. Check whether the oil is heated and drop in the cylindrical shaped seedai batch by batch and fry at medium to high flame.
    9. Give it a stir occasionally and fry well. Do not let it turn brown.
    10. Once done take it out and place on a strainer or tissue cloth to remove excess oil.
    11. The prepared Chettinad Seedai can be stored in an airtight container and it can stay fresh for a month.
