Avarekalu kodubale recipe explained with step by step pictures.Avarekalu kodubale prepared using rice flour, avarekalu, maida, coconut and spices. Avarekalu kodubale 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. You can find 3 more kodubale recieps on this website like malnad style kodubale, mysore style kodubale and a soft mosaru kodubale recipe.

In this recipe I have added 1 cup of avarekalu for 2 cups of rice flour. But if you want soft kodubales like mosaru kodubale, then reduce the quantity of rice flour. Adding hot oil and deep frying at medium flame is very important to prepare crispy kodubale. You can repace the hot oil with butter as well.
