Maida Seedai - No Burst Seedai ~ Gokulashtami Special !

Janmashtami Wishes to all my friends, readers and who celebrate this great festival. This Krishna Jayanthi is so special to me and i have already shared about the reason behind it here with a small real story of mine. The day where i came to know that i am Pregnant and soon in few months one kutty krishnar or ratha coming to my home, that was one of the most emotional moment that i can't forget in my life. No special words to describe my feelings, only a mother/expecting mom can feel it. Thanks to the Almighty for giving me a lovable Husband and adorable two sons who are the meaning of my life.

Now coming to the recipe, this is my very first attempt in making seedai and hope i got it well. I am yet to taste the seedai but the Kutty Krishnars at home tasted it and said "Yummy". Any other compliment you need?! This seedai did not burst, which was the scary thing with making seedai. My mom had a worst explosion and seedai burst and got her life time scars/mark. So after seeing that i am scared lot and did not took any risk till this morning. But recently saw this Maida seedai on Raks Kitchen and also she mentioned that it is no burst seedai. So am little ok to try it and the recipe also so easy to make. I tried it today morning and it came out well without bursting. Only thing it takes little more time to cook. With the same dough i tried murukku which also came out so well, crunchy and melt in mouth butter murukku.

  1. Maida / All purpose Flour   2 cups
  2. Pottukadalai maavu/Roasted gram dal powder    4 tbsp
  3. Butter, melted     1 tbsp
  4. Asafoetida/Hing    1/4 tsp
  5. Sesame seeds     1 tbsp
  6. Cumin seeds      1 tsp
  7. Salt    to taste
  8. Water    as needed
  9. Oil     to deep fry
  • Take flour in a clean white cloth, tie it loosely and steam it in a idly plate for 20 minutes.
  • After that, allow it to cool for a while, but when it still warm break the into fine flour. Then sift it using sieve and use the sifted fine flour.
  • In a bowl, add steamed and sifted flour, roasted gram dal powder, asafoetida, cumin seeds, salt, sesame seeds mix well and add melted butter, combine and using water make it to a soft and non sticky dough.
  • Now roll gently into seedais without giving much pressure and cover the shaped and resting dough using a cloth. Fry in 3-4 batches based on your kadai size.
  • Heat oil in a kadai to deep fry, when it gets heated fry the shaped seedais in medium heat for 8-10 minutes.
  • Once done drain over paper towel. Do repeat the same procedure for remaining dough.
  • That's it...maida seedai ready.

For Maida Murukku:
  • To the above prepared dough, sprinkle 1 tbsp water and knead it and put the dough in murukku press with desired murukku achu, i used single star plate.
  • Fry it hot oil in medium flame until the hissing sound stops and murukku turn golden brown.

This seedai takes long time to cook, so cook in medium flame for 8-10 minutes.
It will be soft when its out from the oil, but after cooling it get crisp n crunchy.
