Hey there! Hope everyone's having a dhamakedaar diwali out there!! Things have been going good at my end... But I miss being back in India among friends and family. As a kid, it was my responsibility to light up the whole house with diyas. I would then burst crackers with dad till late in the night! By then, mom would make us a fine dinner with all our favorite dishes. Kodubale was always a part of our dinner as it was both mine and my dad's favorite!
So this time, I decided to make kodubale for deepavali. My kodubale turned out really good and everyone seemed to have liked it!! But mom's are still the best!!! :)
1 cup Rice flour
1/2 cup Grated coconut, fresh/frozen
1/4 cup Hurigadale/Putaani/Chana Dhalia, powdered
1-2 tsp Jeera
2 tsp Chilli powder,medium spiced
2 tsp Oil
1/4 tsp Mustard seeds
A pinch of hing
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying
- Grind coconut in a blender without adding water to make it a fine powder.
- Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl; Heat 2 tsp oil and add to the mixture.
- Add very little water and make a dough out of the mixture; Knead well.
- Pull out small balls from the dough and roll them into strands of desired size with your hands. Moist your hands and join one end to the other to form a circle.
- Heat oil in a kadai/wok. Drop the kodubales into the oil and fry on low-medium heat. They are down when they turn golden-brown in color. It usually takes about 8-10 mins.
- Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Store in air-tight containers after they cool down. Enjoi!
