Gavvalu is an Andhra sweet.You need a special appliance to make call it gavvala chekka(made of wood).Take maida in one bowl and salt to it and mix well,then add hot ghee and mix well.Make a dough with the help of water....just like the way we prepare dough for puris.Now make very small balls of this maida dough...the size should be as big as a marble(what kids play).Now take this gavvala chekka and apply some maida flour to it so that the dough doesnt stick on to it.Now take one maida ball and place it at the top of the chekka and just apply a little bit of pressure and press it downwards....we get the shape of a gavva(shell).repeat the process with rest of the balls.Deep fry these balls in oil till they r light brown.Prepare one string consistency of jaggery syrup and add all these prepared gavvalu into the syrup and mix well till each and every gavva is properly coated with the jaggery syrup.
