Now take a small portion of the mixture and add  water little by little to it make  a dough.The dough should not be too hard or soft.(we need to mix the  water small batches ,otherwise the dough will be soaked and when we prepare the  shells it will be very soft and sticky )

217

Divide the dough into small balls.(which size u want u can make it)
218
Now take gavvalu chekka (or fork or a new comb) and apply some oil to it so that the dough doesn't stick on to it.
219

Take one ball and place it on gavvalu chekka and  use thumb to press it downwards or press with finger like small size poori and roll it.The shape of shell will come.Use the back of fork or comb to shape each ball like a shell as shown in the image below.
