Chakodi | Andra Muruku | Ring Murukku

Today's recipe is a savory snack item from Andhra Pradesh. Chakodi is made with rice flour and spices. The interesting part of making this snack is shaping them.This is the first time, i made this snack and we love it a lot. It's almost similar to the one we used to buy at sweet stall.
In shops, Chakodi are in bright red color, may be they use artificial color or kashmiri chili powder. I didnt use food color here, if you wish you can use it. Now let see the procedure

  1. Chegodi is a nice snack to munch on. I never bought these in stores but your chegodi color looks just fine. The darker color comes from frying it a little longer.

  2. Ring murukku looks delicious.I like the last pic ,peeping through the ring.

  14. Looks good. I tried them today. Taste was awesome but somehow the dough was not having much of binding . It was breaking a bit and I could not make into ring. Can you suggest what might be wrong. I just made into small roundels. But liked the taste and crunch.

    1. Breaking of the dough happens when the flour is not cooked well.Make sure that the water is boiling well before adding the flour and mix it well. And also use fine variety of rice flour that cooks very easily.
