kodubale recipe | ring murukku recipe | spicy kodbale | ಕೋಡುಬಳೆ
Kodbale | Kodubale is a popular anytime snack very popular in Karnataka. Kodu means horn and bale means bangle in Kannada. Popularly made during festival times and a great treat to send off snacsk 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.
Here i have shown two recipes with small variations , both are awesome and tasty , the video recipe is the second version .
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.
There is no need to overlap the coil of dough , we need to make a ring , pinch the ends, i have added additional overlap .
Note the small cracks on the kodbale, which means they are fried well and very crunchy.
