Chakodi - South Indian Snack

Rice flour - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Ajwaine (Ova) powder - 3 tbsp
Butter - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

Boil water in a bowl and slowly add butter, ajwaine powder and rice flour. Make sure you add the rice flour slowly to avoid formation of balls. Now add salt to taste. Remove from flame and cover with a lid. Set aside for around 3 to 4 hours, to cool.

After around 4 hours, mix the above into a dough. Take a small portion of the dough and roll into a long rod-like form. Cut this into small logs of around 2-3 inches. Move these into expanding spiral to form the wonderful chakodi's. In the same way prepare all your chakodi's with the dough.

In a deep frying pan, heat the oil. Once the oil is hot enough to deep fry, slowly deep fry the above prepared chakodi's.

Author's Note
A very tasty snack easy to prepare and can be preserved. Once prepared, store in wair-tight container and they will last for around 1 month. These are very good tea-time snacks.
