What to Eat in Andhra Pradesh
Gavvalu is one of the typical sweets made in Andhra Pradesh, and is a mixture(dough) of rice flour and water or milk. The prepared dough is shaped into small rounds, which are flattened and rolled (on a special tool) so as to take the shape of gavvalu (cowrie shells). These shells are fried in oil or ghee and can be set aside for some time until the diners are ready to eat them. When eaten, these shells are poured into sugar or jaggery syrup.
