Of late I have been busy with too many things.Apart from the regular work,I have one or the other classes everyday – swimming,painting and what not. I am tired.Mind want’s to rest but heart doesn’t agree. I haven’t even had time to watch any of my fav serials on TV,missed so many episodes of Criminal Minds,Fringe and CSI.Unfortunately hulu doesn’t play Criminal Minds online,huh!.God,24hrs aint enuf for me. Weather is getting worse day by day,its abt 0F now.We already had our first major snow storm warning last week,gosh three more months to go.Oh lemme stop cribbing.This is how the entrance to my house looks….fully covered with snow!
Its P’s birthday tomorrow,I need to bake his Birthday cake.I have too many things in mind,hope all materialize well.For now,I logged in to post ICC?s Nov Challenge ? Chegodilu.I’ve never heard about this,though I have had similar ones called Kodubele(not sure if they are the same).It was nice to munch on these cute li’l rings.Srivalli had suggested two recipes,I tried the second one.
Rice flour – 3/4 cup
All purpose flour/ Maida – 1/4 cup
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Ajwain – 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/4 tsp
Turmeric really a pinch
Salt as per taste
Oil to deep fry
Method: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.
Verdict: P finished it all in a day,he loved it. Its definitely a great snack to munch on.
