Unlike murukku, we have to be little bit careful while preparing cheedai. Even if the proportion of ingrediants is slightly varied, we won’t get good result.

Uppu cheedai :

raw rice : 1 cup

urud dal : 1 tsp

white ellu – 1/2 tsp

salt – 1/4 tsp

butter – 1 tsp

jeera – 1/2 tsp

cooking oil – 250 gm

asafoetida – 1/4 tsp

Method of preparation :

Wash rice and allow to dry in a cool place. Make it a nice powder. Dry roast urud dal and make it a powder. Along with these two flours, add salt, butter, jeera,  ellu and  asafoetida. Mix gently by adding little water.  We have to knead in such a way that the consistency will be like chapathi dough. Heat cooking oil in a pan. Make small balls and put them in hot oil and cook in a medium flame. When they turn light golden brown colour, we can take out from oil.
