I have worked with sesame plant DNA extraction. I can understand your
problem. I spent months trying to get intact DNA from OIlseeds like
gingelly (sesame).  SDS alone may not work with oilseed plants and
seeds.  What you could do is use a protocol like Dellaporte (search for
a paper in nucleic acidsresearch in 1991 or 1990).  protocols that use
N-Laurylsarcosine and PVP (to complex polyphenolic compounds) is best.
You can reduce the viscosity of the DNA sup after extraction with these
two compounds pretty well.

I would use 1% SDS in lysis buffer followed by two extractions with
chloroform. This will remove both SDS and fat/lipids.
