Salt - as required
Cumin seeds - 1 table spoon
Moong dal + Chana dal (soak in water for an hour and roughly grinded) - 2 tsp
Butter - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 stem
Oil for deep frying

Method:
Bring water to boil.
Grind the chillies, curry leaves and cumin seeds in a mixer along with salt.
Add the above paste, butter, and chana, moong dals mixture to rice flour. Combine well with boiled water. Check for salt/chilly taste, can add more if required. Cool this dough completely.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan for deep frying.
Place the round ball (smaller than a lemon) size of the dough on an oil coated plastic sheet and with hand make a 2″ circle and make a small hole in centre.
Peel the round shaped chekkalu off the plastic sheet and fry in hot oil. Reduce flame to medium and deep fry the chekkalu till golden brown.
