  • 1 cup Rice Flour
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1.5 tbsp Moong Dal
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp White Sesame Seeds
  • 1.5 to 2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Soak the moong dal in water for 30 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a wide and heavy bottomed vessel, boil one cup of water. Then add the soaked moong dal, salt and a tablespoon of oil to it. Bring it to a boil.
  • Reduce the flame to low and slowly add the rice flour to the boiling water.
  • Combine the flour with water by stirring it well. Turn off the flame.
  • Cover the vessel with a lid and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Let it cool completely.
  • Once cool, add the red chilli powder, sesame seeds and cumin seeds and mix well. Knead the dough till smooth.
  • To make the chegodis, grease your hands with little oil and pinch a marble size ball of the dough and roll between your palms to form a little thick rope. Join the ends together to make a ring.
  • Cover them with a lid to prevent drying.
  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. When the oil is hot (not smoking hot), slowly drop the prepared rings one by one.
  • Deep fry them until crisp and golden brown color. Drain in kitchen towels and let them cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.
