Sakinalu is a traditional snack in Telangana region. It is prepared during Makar Sankranti, weddings and any other occasion.   

Soaking time – 5 hrs

Make 20 – 25 Sakinalu, depending on sizes.

Ingredients

Method
  1. Wash the rice and soak it in water for 4 – 5 hrs.
  2. Drain the water. Dry the rice on thin cloth for 25 mins. Grind it as fine powder.
  3. In a large bowl add flour, ajwain, sesame seeds, salt and mix well.
  4. Now add water slowly to get proper consistency.
  5. The dough should not be too watery or to thick.
  6. Take a bowl of water and wet your hands.
  7. Take small quantity of the dough and make round thin circles on a cloth
