It’s Krishna Jayanti today and there are so many seedai making guru’s. Hence I am not going to publish the regular way. Moreover it’s a working day and its quite difficult to do it after coming back from work. Inspired by some baking seedai posts in pinterest this is my version of vegan baking seedai for which you can take the help of kids too. Fine ground rice flour, roasted urad dhal flour, cumin seeds, coconut, hing powder mixed with olive oil and water is made as a soft pliable dough. It is then rolled into small balls and baked in oven. Yummy seedai is ready. I got the readymade rice flour and roasted urad dhal flour as it definitely saves a lot of time. Preparing seedai this way does not have butter. The rolling of seedai however takes the same amount of time but since it does not burst you need not do it perfectly. Hence you can delegate this work to your little one’s too and share this work. In fact my first batch was prepared by my daughter while I was taking her pictures. Since I wanted to do it the vegan way I did not use butter but replaced it with olive oil. You may use butter if you still want. You may wish to add sesame seeds if you want along with this. I did not add as I was running out of stock. Once the seedai was cooked though the buttery taste was missing the seedai still tasted good. With the butter version it was just exactly the same.

  • No need to flip the seedai’s , just observe when it gets into brown color. Take that piece and check if it is hard like a seedai.13. It got cooked for me at 32 minutes after the pre heat time.

I love to cook the most authentic way. Most of my recipes are cooked either in claypot or kalchatti / soapstone. They are extremely beneficial as they retain the nutrients. Before cooking a recipe in these vessels I do in-depth research and make sure it is doable in any modular kitchen.
