Kodbale is a popular anytime snack very popular in Karnataka. Kodu means horn and bale means bangle in Knnnada. Popularly made during festival times and a great send off snack with kids who leave their home town to move out for higher education to other cities and stay in hostels. I had several friends who guarded these yummy crispy snacks in their rooms after their return from their family homes. Justifiably so.
This is one of the most simplest snack to make and so tasty too.
Knead the dough to a smooth but firm texture make coils like the one shown .
Make coils and turn them round to make small bangle shaped rings with the ends pinched together to hold .
Keep the prepared coils on a plate and deep fry when the oil is heated and sufficient number has been made to fry together.
Note the small cracks on the kodbale, which means they are fried well and very crunchy.
