Uppu seedai is a savoury snack made with rice flour and  with some spices it is offered as a prasad in south Indian households during krishnastami , yes lord krishna likes this round crispy balls and mostly make during this festival. Krisnastami is round the corner so thought to make this seedai for this festival.

seedai in tamil means rice flour balls and there are so many types of making seedai like sweet version (vella seedai ) and this is a salted version that’s why the name called uppu seedai means salted rice flour balls . Last time I made this savoury seedai but I failed because once u failed while making dough it starts to bursting in oil and be safe while making this but probably this time it made success for me but I got a few cracks not so much but satisfied with my attempt this year.
