Chegodilu/Chekodi~~Indian Cooking Challenge

Chegodilu or Chekodi is one of the savoury snack items which is quite famous in Andhra..Its quite a long i tried this crispy snacks and i have completely forgotten..But fortunately Srivalli choosed these crispies for this month challenge, i was really happy when she asked us to check out ICC blog for this month challenge, coz every month we are trying different Indian dishes which were quite challenging and really interesting..I wasnt wrong, yea she choosed this savoury snacks for this month challenge and i have tried both versions she have posted under this challenge, i have already prepared three times and every time this chegodilu vanish within a day, a prefect evening snack tastes incredibly crispy with a cup of coffee...I enjoyed making out and my lil ones enjoyed having this ring murukku..Anyhow i liked the version where the recipe goes for all purpose flour and rice flour and we loved it..Do u need anything more than these crispies to enjoy this cold weather with ur cup of coffee...


3/4cup Rice flour
1/4cup All purpose flour/ Maida
2Tbsp Ghee
1/4tsp Ajwain
1/4tspRed chilli powder
Pinch of Turmeric
Salt
Oil for deep frying

Boil a cup water in a bowl, add salt to it.When the water starts boiling, remove from stove and add ajwain, red chilli powder, turmeric and flours. Stir with a ladle to make sure it is mixed well. Pour ghee on it and cover.Once it cools, knead it to form smooth dough.

Pinch out small balls of dough and roll them like threads between your palm, bring the ends together to form into small rings..

Fry them in hot oil til they turn golden in colour. Enjoy with hot coffee..
