Baked whole grain seedai – adapted recipe of Vidya (Traditionally Modern Food)

DSC01944

Seedai is a deep-fried traditional dish that is made for Krishna Janmashtami or the birthday of Lord Krishna. Every time that I have tried making these for the festival, the seedai pops in the oil, with a violent ‘explosion’, always a disaster, leaving me in a state of shock.

Recently, Vidya of Traditionally Modern Food posted this baked version of the snack. What an ingenious solution to the problem! There is no difference in the taste, they are as good as the deep-fried seedai. Hats off to you, Vidya! Thank you for this lovely recipe.

In an effort to make this whole grain, I used 50% brown rice flour, and with great success. Here’s my version of the recipe- for detailed step-by-step instructions and pictures, you’ll have to visit Vidya’s blog. 🙂

Ingredients:

brown rice flour- 1/2 cup

rice flour- 1/2 cup

roasted urad flour- 2 tbsp.

asafoetida powder-  a pinch

salt- to taste

shredded coconut- 2 tbsp. (optional)

sesame seeds- 1 tbsp.

butter- 3 tbsp.

coconut oil- 2 tsp. for dough + more for greasing hands

For a detailed Method, go to Vidya’s recipe here.  In short ,it is baked at 400 °F for 25 minutes.
