Sweet Seedai

Sweet Seedai:

Sweet seedai will be very tasty and crunchy with the mild sweetness. We used to prepare this on the day of Krishna Jayanthi and karthigai deepam, as neivedhyam. This is very easy to prepare when these steps to followed with little care, otherwise, there are chances to dissolve in oil while frying.  The method which I have mentioned below will be easier to prepare. It is just the dough consistency we need to be cautious to prevent the seedai from getting dissolved. This crunchy sweet snack can be stored for 10 to 15 days.
