Vella Cheedai In 5 Minutes

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Friday, August 14, 2009 | 1:48 PM

A recipe that really is a few minute wonder. I know I must have posted this one 2 days ago to help all of you prepare valle cheedai for Krishna's birthday. Though preparation is super fast its the documentation that is time consuming. This recipe is from Mrs. Radha Viswanath a good friend of my sisters. I think it tastes like the cheedai that our moms used to slog to prepare. It takes 5 ingredients to prepare and its as simple as mixing and deep frying. I was so thrilled with this recipe that I wanted to share with all of you and make life easy.


Measuring cups and spoons
Paper Towel

Ingredients: Makes 20-25 cheedais.

Rice flour (store bought) - 1 cup
Udad dhal roasted and powdered - 1/8th tsp
Butter- 1 tsp
Brown sugar - 1 cup
Elachi - 2 pods powdered
Water to form a dough ( a few sprinkles)
Oil to deep fry


1. Heat the oil in the wok to medium. This is very important step.If you keep it on high they will disintegrate.

2. In a bowl add all of the dry ingredients and form the dough( not a wet dough for sure).It might for small cracks but that is fine. It helps them cook well.

3. Make small balls and deep fry.
