Sakinalu from Indian State Telangana

Sakinalu is a special type of snack prepared in the northern region of Telangana, India. It consists of concentric circles made of rice flour dough, fried in oil. It is prepared during the Makar Sankranti festival. As per Telugu tradition, they are given to the groom's parents by the bride's parents to distribute among their relatives and friends.


The word "sakinalu" is believed to be originated from "chakinamu", which is based on "chakram", which means wheel or circle. This is because of its circular shape. The farmer community prepares this traditional festival cuisine during Makar Sankranti when the fresh crop of paddy has been harvested.

It is recognized as one of the Telangana Traditional Festival cuisines.


For this recipe I have used powdered rice flour. But we need to soak normal white rice for 8 to 10 hours, strain and dry in semi-shade, then grind the rice when it is slightly wet, then sieve the flour.
