Now take a small lemon size ball of the dough, using your index and thumb fingers and make chakkilalu  (like sprial rope) in a circular motion. (It may be little hard, but after two or three chakkilalu, it would be easy) Make all the chakkilalu in the same manner and place them on a damp cloth  as shown in the picture.

Heat oil in a pan for deep fry.  Now deep fry the prepared chakkilalu until golden brown color.  Drain on a kitchen paper and store in an air tight container.
