Chegodilu/Crispy Savory Snack


Chegodilu/Crispy Savory Snack

Chegodilu is a crunchy and delectable tea time snack. It is ring shaped crispy snack made with rice flour and flavored with cumin and sesame seeds.It is popular Andhra snack.

Ingredients
Rice flour- 1 1/2 cup
Water- 1 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds- 2-3 tbs
Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Hing- 1/3 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

 Bring water to a boil. Heat 3 tbs of oil in a pan.

Mix in rice flour,salt,sesame seeds,cumin seeds, chilly powder and hing in a bowl. Pour over the hot oil and using a fork mix well and evenly distribute the oil. It should resemble wet sand.

Now pour over the boiling water and mix till the dough comes together.Close with a tight lid and allow it to cool down a  bit and then knead into a smooth dough. Cover with damp cloth and let it rest for ten minutes.

Take small golf sized balls and roll it into a cylinder and then like a rope. Pinch the two ends together to form a circle and keep aside covered with a damp cloth ( the rings should not get dry). Continue the same process with the rest of the dough.

Heat two cup of oil in a pan.Fry this in batches till it is crispy and golden brown. Use medium heat to fry.Too much heat will make it crispy in the outer and soft inside and less heat will absorb too much oil. Drain in paper towels and allow to cool. Store in air tight containers.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy
