Vella Seedai

Vella Seedai is prepared as a regular sweet by all south Indians. There are many variations and some add sugar and the others jaggery or karuppatti. In chettinad this particular recipe is called as karuppatti seedaikkai. This I shall post later when I make it.
Now for the gokulashtami I have tried out vella seedai. You can also try and make this wonderfully tasty recipe.
