For the final day of regional recipes from Andhra cuisine for Blogging Marathon is chegolidu aka chekodi.
I enjoy these crispy rings whenever my friend and her mom makes.I never made it myself and tried it for the first time with my friend's instruction.
Its a perfect munching snack along with a cup of tea.As we heve the habit of  accompaning some murukku or mixture with our sambar rice,we had it with our meal.
