Fried Rice Rings ( Chegodilu )

2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 cup Rice Flour
½ Stick Butter
2 tbsp Tymol Seeds
¼ tsp Asafetida
1 tsp Red Chili Powder
2tbsp white Sesame Seeds
Salt to taste
½ tsp Baking Soda
Water (sufficient for making dough)
Oil for frying

First in a bowl mix all the dry ingredients together (All purpose flour, rice flour, Salt, Red chili powder, Asafetida, baking powder, tymol seeds and sesame seeds).
Heat butter in a pan after the butter melts, add water and bring it to boil. Now slowly add the dry ingredients and mix it properly without lumps. Now remove the mixture from the pan and knead the dough on the dry board with little oil in a hand. Take small amount of dough and shape it into small rings. Repeat the process for the remaining dough. Allow these rings to rest for 1/2 hr on a greased surface.
Take a deep frying pan and heat oil on a medium heat (375 C) and fry those rings on a medium heat until crisp.

Note: You don’t want your dough to be sticky so if it has too much water or is too sticky to you can add a sprinkle of flour to the dough and continue kneading.
