Abstract: This study aims to determine the impact of pretreatment of rice flour on the quality characteristics and oil absorption of the deep fried South Indian festive snack item namely, “Seedai”. Products were prepared using untreated rice flour (control) and dry heat treated rice flour. The experimental product had higher sensory scores over the control product. Fat absorbed by the control was 29%, but pretreating the rice flour (dry heat treated) decreased it to 22%. Similar results were seen in case of “oiling off” values. Free Fatty Acid, water, and crude fat were lower in the experimental product when compared to that of the control product. Therefore, the study revealed that dry heat as a method of pretreatment for rice flour was found to improve the quality of Seedai, a traditional South Indian festive snack.
