This is typical traditional Andhra sweet .It is called Gaavvalu becomes it looks like a shell.Gaava means sea shell. It is very much liked by kids and very easy to make .Telugu people usually have a small wooden plate with lines to make this sweet. You could use any lid with limes instead of Gaavvala peeta.

Maida 2 cups
Ghee 4 spoons
Sugar 2 cups
Oil for frying

1. In bowl mix maida and 3/4 cup water. Heat a pan and melt ghee . Mix the hot ghee in the maida and water. Make this like chapathi dough.
2. Make them into 1 inch balls .Take the gavvalapeeta and roll them as gaavvalu. If you dont have gaavvala peeta, you can use any bottle lid which is having lines.
3. Fry the gavvalu or shells in oil. Make sugar syrup with string consistency. Dip the gavvalu in the sugar syrup till they are completely immersed and dry them on a seperate plate.
4.After they are dry store them in air tight container.
