Teepi Gavvalu is an Andhra Sweet Snack where the Gavvalu are deep fried and added to the Jaggery/Bellam pakam/syrup.
Teepi means sweet and Gavvalu in Telugu means sea shells. The shape of the sweet looks like shells as they are rolled using a mould or even a fork does the magic.
This one can turn into a favorite for all ages especially kids.

Mix all ingredients listed for Gavvalu and make a soft dough like for Puri. The water measurement I gave should be enough.
Make a marble size balls and press them on the Gavvalu mould or on a fork to get the shape.
Heat oil for deep frying and fry them till they turn golden. Each batch should take about 5 minutes on low flame.
Take a pan and ingredients listed for pakam/syrup and bring it to a boil. The consistency of the syrup should be of a soft ball that doesn't move when dropped in water.
Add the fried Gavvalu mix well and turn off the stove.
Cool them off and store in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
