Maidha 2 cups
Ghee 2tbsp

Mix maidha,salt,soda together.Boil 2 tbsp of ghee seperately in a small pan,and add to the maidha flour.Now mix them and add water and mix them smoothly just like we mix for puris.Now take a gavvalu peeta.Make small round balls and keep aside.
Now place each small round ball on gavvala peeta  press and roll them .They look like shells with Upand down small lines will be formed on them.Like wise prepare all of them .Meanwhile prepare sugar syrup in a pan by adding 1 cup of water to it.Boil the syrup till about medium consiatancy and keep it covered.
Place a pan with oil on the stove,and after the oil is heated ,deep fry these gavvalu and place in sugar syrup for 5 min and take off them .Now place them in a dry wide bottomed vessel to dry.After they are dried completely store them.
Hot gavvalu:
