Kobbari Chegodilu.

Coconut rings / kobbari chegodilu are deep fried dough rings. The dough is prepared from equal parts of maida, sooji and rice flour. Good amount of fresh coconut is added to the mixture along with chili powder. The dough is made into small rings and deep fried in oil till golden in color.
Makes: around 15 Kobbari Chegodilu.

Ingredients:

Plain Flour / Maida 1/4 Cup
Sooji 1/4 Cup
Rice Flour 1/4 Cup
Fresh Coconut 1/4 Cup
Soda Bi Carb a Pinch
Red Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 2 tbsps + for Deep Frying

Method of preparation:

Grind the coconut into smooth paste adding little water.
Heat oil in a small pan till smoking point and remove from heat.
In a mixing bowl, mix together maida, sooji, rice flour, coconut paste, red chilli powder, soda bi carb and salt.
Add the hot oil to the mixing bowl and mix the flour into a smooth pliable dough adding enough water.
Rest the dough for at least half an hour.

Apply oil to hands, take lime sized balls out of the prepared dough.
Roll the ball into approximately 3 inch long strip with the help of fingers.
Press the ends of the strip together to form the shape of a ring.
Repeat the same with the remaining dough.

Heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium high.
Slowly drop the prepared rings into the hot oil in batches.
Deep fry the rings until golden brown on both sides and remove onto absorbent paper.
Repeat the same with any remaining rings.
Store the coconut rings tight and serve as a tea time snack.
Notes: Make sure to deep fry the rings right.

Suggestions: Add more red chilli powder for extra spice. If the rings turn soft once taken out from the oil, put them back in oil and deep fry again till crisp.
Variations: Chegodilu is a good variation of these. You can also add finely shredded coconut instead of ground coconut but do not use grated coconut.
