Chuppulu

Hai friends today i am coming with the Chuppulu.This is famous snack in Andhra.This is nice muncing snack.I love this snack.During m pregnancy i mostly crave for this snack but i could not get from India.I asked my mom i want to eat this snack than my Mom told this recipe i tried and it came out good.But little difficult for me to do this because i was carrying 8 months.Anyway i tried and succeed in this recipe.Ok lets go to the reciepe.

Ingredients:

Rice Flour-2 cups
Sesame seeds-1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Ajwain-1/2 tsp
Water required to knead the dough
Oil-2 cups

Preparations:

How to prepare the Rice Flour:

First we have to clean the rice and soak the rice for 8 hours.
After 8 hours clean the rice and and drain the water completely.
When the water is drained completely now dry the rice on the cloth for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes take the dried rice in the jar and grind to fine powder.
Still there must be some coarse rice in the powder.
Now we have to seive the rice powder to get fine and smooth flour.
Sieve all the rice flour and keep it aside.

Method

Now measure 2 cups of flour and take them in the big and wide bowl.
To this add the sesame seeds,salt ,ajwain and whisk it well.
Now slowly add the water and mix it like dough but this dough must be little loose.
When it gets dry add little water and make the dough little firm.Keep it aside for 15 minutes.
Now place the dry cloth on the table wher it is sufficent to make chuppulu.
video
Take small amount of dough and make it like multiple circles as shown in the pics and videos.
Keep this aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
In the mean time we have to heat the oil.
When the oil gets heat slowly drop the chuppulu one by one and fry this until it turns to light brown.
Take out from the oil and drain them on the tissue paper to absorb excess oil.
Do all like that and make it cool.
When it gets cool store them in the air tight box.This is good for 1 month.
Serve this with evening Tea.

Note:
You can use the store bought flour but the fresh flour gives nice chuppulu.
Actual recipe ratio for sesame seeds is 2:2 ratio but i use 2:1/2 ratio because here if we add more sesame seeds it gives bitter taste.So i add 1/2 cup sesame seeds.
