Chegodilu - A Snack from Andhra, Tried from Versatile Kitchen

Hello friends,


If you have ever had a Diwali (or Deepavali) thali @ an Andhrite in India, you would know what Chegodilu are. It is this wonderful crunchy, superb tasting snack that Diwali thali is not complete with out.


I had this recipe of Champa bookmarked to make it. We make it slightly different at my mom's place, but I so wanted to give this a try. And, I did, this evening. I was just sitting and my son was bugging me for some snack and I was like, ok, let me make it for you. I have never tried it at home (after marriage) before. I am so glad I did. I prepared it all in 15 odd minutes (my first batch was out of oil) from the time I thought of making and my son was happy eating it.



The bottom pic is raw and the top one if the fried one. Please check the recipe @ Champa's blog.




I am also sending this to EFM - Sweets and Savories for Diwali event of Srilekha.





I also have to share this cute snack where my 10 month old (he turned 10 months only yesterday) was giving me company while I was making it :) I have to tell you where he is standing as he does that all the time. He is standing on a 2-step step-stool which I use to reach higher shelves. As soon as I reach the kitchen, he will follow me and climbs on it (all on his own) and stands there till I am all done :)




That's all for tonight. Take care till next post.
