Cheeda Recipe

Cheeda is a tasty, tea-time snack hailing from the region of Kerala. These bite-zied nibbles are either round and simple or of different fascinating shapes. They can be both sweet and savoury. The rice flour ensures that the 'crisp' factor is never compromised. You can also make a bunch in advance and store them in air-tight containers.  The Christians of Kerala also prepare the snack to serve to guests during Christmas festivities. Cheeda is also known as Seedai in other parts of South India. Both Uppu and Vella Seedai are lavishly prepared on Janmashtami and served as Naivedyam to Lord Krishna.
