kodubale or kodbale recipe

Kodubale or kodbale recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is a Mysore style kodubale recipe prepared using rice flour, fried gram, chiroti rava (or maida) and coconut. Kodubale or Kodbale is popular deep fried snacks from Karnataka which will be in ring shape.

"Kodu" word has two meanings in Kannada language. One is "horn" and the other one is a generic name for whole dried beans or long beans. For example it is used like "alasande kodu" for dried long beans. And "bale" translates to bangles in Kannada language. So is the name kodu bale. At my house kodubale, hasi thambittu and shuti-bella are prepared for gokulashtami or Shri krishna janmashtami. You can find one more Malnad style kodubale and a soft mosaru kodubale recipe on this website. Mosaru kodubale is prepared using rice flour and curd. Unlike regular kodubales, mosaru kodubale is little bit on softer side but tastes too good.

This kodubale or kodbale ingredients are similar to popular nippattu recipe. So read and try that also.
