Chitti Chitkalu / Tips :

-Fry the maida biscuits well, the crispy they are the yummier it is.

-How do know the bellam pakam (Jaggery syrup) is done: Take a steel plate with water add the pakam / syrup to it TEST: If it dissolves - Not done, if it forms a ball and you hear it fall on the steel plate(tung sound) -done
