    Combine the flour, salt. baking soda, red chilli powder and cumin seeds in a mixing bowl.
    Add the warm oil to the flour and mix everything.
    Add the soaked moong dal and combine.
    Make a firm dough by adding water little by little.
    Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
    To make the chegodis, pinch a marble sized ball of the dough and roll between your palms to form a little thick rope.
    Join the ends together and make a ring.
    Cover them with a lid to prevent drying.
    Heat oil in a pan for deep frying the chegodis.
    When the oil is hot, slowly drop the prepared rings one by one.
    Deep fry them on a low-medium flame until crisp and golden brown color.
    Drain them on paper towels and let them cool completely.
    Store in an airtight container and serve.
