Maida Paalakayalu (seedai)
Thanks to all of you who had made their guesses yesterday.. here is the answer for it. Most of you were right, few partially right and for few others, looks are deceptive. ;)
Its not a totally new dish or something to bring it to a guess contest though, but its always nice to involve ppl into something that we do isn't it. Its fun..
Maida paalakayalu is a yummy snack for kids. It has been my favorite from childhood too.. :)
There is one more secret I should surely share with you. Read through to know it. ;)
Maida - 4 cups
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Powdered Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Cooking soda - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1 1/2 cups
Beat ghee and cooking soda together nicely and then add sugar to it and mix well. Now add the maida and mix it nicely too. Finally add milk(cold) to it and kneed it well. The dough should be in poori dough consistency.
Now roll them into small balls and fry it in oil till the color changes to golden brown. This seedai would have a nice brown crispy crust with soft inner portion. It will not be hard. Maida paalakayalu is ready to eat :)
Hmmm okay I shall not make you wait anymore.. the secret is that the dough(white one in the second picture) is the tastiest part of the dish. If you pop one into your mouth, I am sure you can't resist eating it raw, and would really not have much remaining to fry. You would rather say 'apdiye saptuduven' ;) Never miss that out when you make this dish :)
I am sending this dish to Easy2Cook Recipes "First cooked food" event.
