Chegodilu / Chekodilu for Indian Cooking Challenge

When I saw this month's (first time for me) recipe, it reminded me of Kodubale which is a karnataka speciality. I love kodubale especially the ones my mother makes. When I say they are the best kodubale I have eaten, I am not lying and it is not even due to my mother's love that makes me say it. Hers are the best. Anyway, coming to this recipe, I used one of the recipe given. Link to the announcement is here.  I am copying the recipe that I followed here..

  1. Rice flour - 3/4 cupAll purpose flour/ Maida - 1/4 cup
  2. Ghee - 2 tbsp
  3. Ajwain - 1/4 tsp (I used 1/4 tsp jeera and 1/4 tsp white sesame seeds in its place)
  4. Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
  5. Turmeric really a pinch
  6. Salt as per taste
  7. Oil to deep fry

Boil 1 cup water in a bowl, add salt to it.

When the water starts boiling, remove from stove, 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 color. Pictures didn't come out good. I was in a hurry. Here is one more..

Happy Cooking!! Pin It
