Ingredients for seeyam
All Purpose Flour / Maida :
Maida requires more oil or butter when baking or cooking because it is lighter and rises faster, which is why bakers prefer maida to atta. All-purpose flour can be used for a variety of tasks, including baking, cooking, coating meats and vegetables, and thickening sauces and gravies. To manufacture all-purpose flour, a blend of
hard wheat (which has more gluten) and soft wheat is crushed together.
Jaggery / Sarkarai / Vellam :
Depending on its composition, jaggery can taste like fresh cane juice, maple syrup, caramel, or molasses. The unrefined natural sweetener is available in a variety of colours, including light amber, golden brown, and dark brown. Jaggery is known by many different names, including gur in Urdu, gud in Hindi, and vellam in Tamil.
