Uppu Seedai | Crispy Rice Balls!!!

Uppu Seedai is a very traditional recipe for Sri Krishna Janmashtami/Gokulashtami click here for details on this festival. This recipe is simple and for people who cannot do it in a tradtional way.I prepared this for last year's festival. I would also be posting traditional recipe soon.

Thenguzhal Maav/Murukku Flour - 2 cups(Store bought.Easily available at all Indian grocery stores) I used what my mom sent from India
Crushed peper - 1/2 tspn(As per your taste)
Fresh grated coconut - 2 tspns
White sesame seeds/Till/Ellu - 2 tspns
Coconut oil - 2 tspns
Unsalted butter - 2 tspns(at room temperature)
Peringayam/Hing/Asafotida - a pinch
Salt as required
Water as required
Oil for deep frying

Preparation Method
In a kadai, dry roast the flour to slightly brown. Allow it to cool.
In a wide vessel, add the flour, salt, pepper, fresh grated coconut and butter. Slowly mix butter with the flour. Add water and make it to a dough.
Cover it with a lid. Heat oil in kadai.
Grease your hands with coconut oil. This will give aromatic seedai.
Take some portion of dough and make small balls in batches and deep fry in low medium flame till brown.
When deep frying stand a bit far from the kadai, as sometimes it might burst a bit if any
Do the same in rest of the dough. Allow it to cool.

Crispy Uppu Seedai is ready for prasadam for Krishna Janmashtami.

Notes :
You can also add Jeera instead of Ellu/Sesame seeds.
You can also grease your hands with any other cooking oil.

Store it in air tight container and Enjoy.
