Cheedai / Seedai tips - prevent explosion

Janmashtami special cheedai / seedai :-

How to make a cheedai making 'terror' into a 'pleasure'? i.e. How to prevent cheedai / seedai from exploding? Here are few tips which I practice and makes my cheedai making successful everytime right from first time.

  1. Seive the flour well.
  2. Very lightly roast the flour
  3. Roast the sesame seeds till they pop
  4. Never shape it to a perfect round. Slightly flatten on both sides or in an imperfect round shape.
  5. See that the surface is smooth (without cracks)
  6. Keep less oil and put more cheedai / seedai balls

100% if you follow the above, it will not explode. If you still are left with some fear..... no need to wear a helmet. Just keep a perfect lid handy and partly cover the kadai (not fully) to your side.  don't worry, after two batches, you will get the confidence to fry it without the lid. :-)





May your life be crisp like a cheedai, sweet like the sweet flattened rice and smooth like the butter. May the lord fill your life with his blessings.



Wish you all a happy Janmashtami

Thanks Mira, for many years from the first year of marriage the seedai didn't explod. But, three years back it exploded very heavily. so, I stopped preparing uppu seedais at home.
