Seepu Seedai ~ Chettinad Special

Seepu Seedai

Seepu Seedai is a Chettinad Special murukku also called as Seepu Murukku. The ingredient that makes this different is the coconut milk that’s added.

This deep fried snack is also made on a special acchu or press, however you can make this with a comb as the snack name says. Seepu means Comb in tamil and when the mold is not handy, a comb is used. It goes without saying that a new comb is used!

When I was sorting out my list of rice based palaharam or snacks, this was included right away as it’s been something I have been wanting to make for a long time. This is the first snack I made and of course, I couldn’t get a proper mold and the comb I used didn’t give me the required shape.

I was planning to redo it, however, there was never the time to attempt this snack. If I must talk about a recipe that didn’t work out, then it must be this one. However, the taste was very good and even the barely there meeting shape, the snack got over. I saw the acchu much later so maybe sometime later, I will get to make these again.

1 cup Raw Rice
1/4 cup Urad Dal
1/8 cup Fried Gram Dal
1/2 cup Thick Coconut Milk
2 tsp Butter
Salt to taste
Cooking Oil for deep frying
Water hot, as required

How to make Seepu Seedai

Get your homemade rice flour ready.
Roast the Urad Dal and powder it fine. Next grind the fried gram. Make sure to sieve all the flour to remove the coarse pieces.
Extract thick coconut milk and keep it aside.
Heat coconut milk for a minute till it gets hot, you need not boil the milk.
Take rice flour, urad dal flour and fried gram dal flour in a mixing bowl, add salt and butter, mix well with your hands.
Then add hot coconut milk little by little. If you have used up all the coconut milk, add hot water if required.
Knead to a smooth non sticky dough without any cracks.
Take your seepu seedai press. Fill the murukku press with the dough.
Now start pressing them into long tapes then cut them into small strips (around 10 cm) on a big board or your kitchen counter.
Join the ends of the strips around your forefinger to make cylinders. Gently remove it and place it. Repeat the same till the entire dough gets over.
Heat oil and gently drop in the seedai and fry till golden brown. Drain using a slotted ladle to a kitchen towel.
If you don’t have the seepu mold, you can use a comb and press on the long tapes to get the imprints.
Cool down then store in an airtight container.

  1. Must be very tasty and crispy snack. I am getting to see all traditional snacks in the marathon. Recently I saw a seepu seedai recipe and loved their cute shapes. I guess probably little ones have a blast playing with them. 🙂 BTW, store bought flour can be used to make these, right?

    1. Thank you guys! Yes Suma, we can make this with store bought rice flour too, just got to ensure we keep the flour wet or moist as dry flour tends to break fast and not hold its shape.
