Sakinalu

Sakinalu / chakinalu made during Sankranthi Festival.This is made by only Telangana People.In every home this is the common snack at the Sankrathi festival.
Ingredients:
Rice - 6 cups
Sesame seeds(nuvvulu)-1/2 cup
ajwain (oma)-2 tsp
salt - 3 tsp
oil for deep fry
Method:
Soak the rice in water about 4 to 5 hrs.drain the water completely.dry the rice in a cotton cloth about 2 hrs.
                                       
In a grinder grind the rice into fine powder. In India usually the powder made in a mill.Here(in US) don't have this facility.so I used mixie to make this powder. sift the powder to separate the fine powder.to this add sesame seeds,ajwain,salt.
add few water to make soft dough.The dough like little bit thinner than chapathi dough.take small amount of dough make a round shape on a cloth by rolling the dough with fingers.making of sakinalu is shown in below video. 
  video
repeat this process to remaining dough.let them to dry about 1 hr.
heat the oil in a skillet.with a flat shape spoon,Take the sakinalu.drop it into oil
 other wise carefully transfer the sakinalu  onto flat surface use any plate.so u can directly drop 3 or 4 at a time.
 slowly drop them in oil with.deep fry them till they turned into light golden color.
 sakinalu ....are ready to eat.store them in a airtight container,can store up to 1month.
