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

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…
