Chegodi / Chakodi / Ring Muruku

 Chegodi is a very popular hot and spicy snack from Andhra. It is typically made with rice flour and very simple spices which are easily available at home. In some  parts of Andhra people make chegodi with maida / all purpose flour too. These are so simple to make, believe me try to prepare these chegodi with your kids. They would love to make these rings.


Navratri and Diwali are just around the corner and I look up for different varieties of sweets and snacks to offer god. Today I will be preparing these yummy and crispy Chegodi with maida / all purpose flour. I know lot of them fail to make perfect chegodi's.  Follow the simple instruction which I mention below in the making of Chegodi, believe me you won't go wrong or mess up and you will be very happy with the end result. This recipe goes to week 2 day 3 of Blogging Marathon 117 under the theme " Navratri Special".


All purpose flour 1 cup

Salt to taste

Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

Chili powder 1/2 tsp

Carom seeds 1-2 tsp

Sesame seeds 1-2 tsp

 Butter 1 tbsp

Water 1 cup + 2 tbsp

Oil for deep frying


Heat 1 cup + 2 tbsp  water in a sauce pan or flat pan.

Add turmeric powder, chili powder, carom seeds, sesame seeds, butter and salt to taste.

Mix well and bring the water to boiling point.

Turn flame to low.

Now add flour and mix well so that everything is combined well.

Cover and let sit for a minute  and switch off flame.

Transfer to another plate and knead the mixture well to make smooth dough with your hands. 

Make sure you wet your palms in between kneading as the mixture is very hot.

Now pinch a small lemon size ball of dough and roll it to thick rope about 2 inch length and form a ring by joining the edges. 

Repeat the same process with rest of the dough.

Heat oil in deep frying pan.

Add few rings / chegodi at a time and fry on medium heat till nice and crisp.

Patience is required as it will take some time to get nice and crispy.

Remove and place them on paper towel to remove excess oil.

Cool and store in air tight container for up to a month.

Chegodi sounds quite similar to chakri , just that the flour varies , with its ingredients it surely would be very delicious . I am wondering why haven’t I tasted as yet - perhaps I will try it very soon .

I have heard a lot about this snack but never made it on my own. This is indeed a super addictive snack.
