  1. Boil Water. Add everything except Maida and let them boil.

  3. Knead the Flour well while it is still hot or the Chegodis will crumble.
  4. Spread a wet cotton cloth on the hot dough and knead along with the fabric. This step makes it easier to roll while the dough is hot.

  6. Now take the cords and twine them into loops, sealing the edges and making small rings. Let them dry in the air for 30 mins.
  7. Prepare all the rings. In case you do not have a mould, make cords with the hand and then twine them into loops.
  8. Heat the oil, take a slotted spoon, put some Chegodi rings into the Oil and fry them well.
  9. Keep the spoon for a minute in the Oil and let them fry on a high flame. (Follow the tips on frying)
  10. Remove the spoon and let the Chegodi rings on a high flame for 3-4 minutes.
