Kodubale / Kodbale

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!!! :)
This will go in as my entry for JFS:Diwali event hosted by Vee of Past,Present and Me

Ingredients:

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

Method:

  1. Grind coconut in a blender without adding water to make it a fine powder.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl; Heat 2 tsp oil and add to the mixture.
  3. Add very little water and make a dough out of the mixture; Knead well.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Store in air-tight containers after they cool down. Enjoi!

Hi Ramya..
I have tried this kodubale recipe. first round had come out really well and second time when i have put the kodubale's in the kadai, all got broken out. Any idea why it happened?

Thanks
shubha

I have no cooking skills, but I followed the receipe and got good results! My son loved them.

I think this recipe is fantastic but is missing 1 item:) - 1/4 cup maida or atta. Without this its impossible to knead the mixture and make the kodubale rings. Otherwise the taste is very authentic and perfect I think.

Good recipes! Have been following many of your recipes & they're great. A small suggestion to KodbaLe in that my mom adds white sesame seeds which makes the kodbaLes even more awesome. I just love the sesame seeds after they're fried!

jk said...

Beautiful Kodubale..just wanted to confrim it is SESAME seed and not MUSTARDS you mean in your recipe..
