Kajji kayalu ,is a snack item which children like to eat in the evenings after school time,and more over it is a simple and easy  and safe recipe which can be made in minutes of time..It is a tradtional andhra sweet which consume less oil.
  • Maidha 2 cups
  • Salt a pinch
  • Water
Mix maidha,and salt with water(add 1 tbsp milk  also for soft ness) just as we mix for chhappathis..Keep aside.
For stuffing:
  • Suji ravva 3/4 th cup
  • Grated coconut -1/2 cup
  • Sugar 3/4 th cup
  • Elaichi powder 1 tsp
  • Oil (for deep frying)
  • Roast suji ravva in a pan by adding 1 tsp ghee,till light brown and keep it aside.
  • Like wise dry roast the dry coconut grate a little,and place in a bowl.
  • After they are  cool,add suji ravva, grated dry coconut and sugar and elaichi powder ,mix well,store the powder in a container.
  • Knead  the maidha flour well and make small round  balls marble sized.
  • Expertisation should be needed in rolling them  in to small puris.
  • The thickness  should be made evenly ,if it is thin in the middle it will break while deep frying and the stuffing will be leaked out..
  • After preparing a puri add 1  tbsp of the ravva mixture/powder on one side of the puri.
  • Apply a little water to the ends with index finger.
  • And affix the 2 ends firmly to join together,and check that the filling will not come out while deep frying.
  • Place a pan with oil in it for deep frying.
  • Fry in medium heat ,by placing 3 to 4 kajjikayalu at a time.
  • Fry them till light brown and place on a tissue paper.Store them after they are cool.
They remain for more than 10 days.
