Ingredients to make CHEGODALU

  • Rice flour- 4 glasses
  • sesame seeds (nuvvulu)- 1 to 2 glasses
  • chilli powder- 2 tsp
  • salt- around 2 tsp
  • Baking powder or Soda- 1/2 tsp
  • hing- 1/2 tsp
  • jeera- 2 tsp
  • Udat dal - 3 tsp

How to make CHEGODALU

  1. In a small vessel, boil around 4 glasses of water. Add salt, hing, udat dal and bring it to a boil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix the rice flour, sesame seeds, chilli powder, soda and jeera together.
  3. Spread the boiling water into the mixing bowl and coarsely mix with a spoon. Cover this mix with a plate and set it aside for 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to passively steam.
  4. Make a smooth dough. Add additional hot water if needed. Check for taste and add additional salt or chilli powder if needed.
  5. Take a small portion and keep the remaining part covered otherwise it would start crumbling. Divide into small balls. On a greased surface, roll it length wise with palm. Join the edges and make thcircular rings. If thick, it will be soggy.
  6. Deep fry in medium heat. It should be cooked from inside and little hollow.
  7. Store in an air tight container.

My Tip:

a) For better results, heat the water in a cooker pan and turn off. Instead of mixing in a bowl, add the ingredients directly to cooker and close for 5-10 minutes. It will get steamed (ukkadam) better due to heat of the vessel. Moisture of the mix should not be lost, otherwise, the stickiness to form disks will be lost. b) For a more crunchy and sesamy appearance, add sesame seeds to the final portion and loosely roll before dividing into balls. C) do not make it thick as it will be soggy.. try with small portion initially
