Crunchy Kodubale (Fritters)

Kodubale/fried crunchy fritters are the best to have with Deepavali sweets.Though Deepavali is known as festival of lights it is also loaded with varieties of sweets and crunchy spicy fritters.
Here is an easy way of preparing " Kodubale " one of Karnataka special munch.

There are different ways of preparing kodubale. I have prepared kodubale using roasted channa (Hurikadale), steamed maida and rice flour  and the spices.
Here I have used Rice flour, maida (all purpose flour ) and medium size rava. 
As I said it is an easy recipe and any one can try and enjoy any time of the day. Kodubale goes well with cup of coffee/tea/fresh juice.
Lets see the recipe now.

Ingredients :

Fine Rice flour : 1 Cup
Maida (All Purpose flour) : 1/2 Cup
Rava/Semolina (Medium size) : 1/2 Cup
Chilly powder : 2 Teaspoons
Sesame seeds/Thill/Ellu : 1 Teaspoon
Jeera : 1 Teaspoon
Salt : As required
Butter : 1 Tablespoon
Dry coconut/Kopra/Kobbari : 1 Tablespoon (Optional)
Oil : To Fry (1 Cup)

Method :

1. Put rice flour, Maida and rava in a big bowl.
2. Add chilly powder, salt, sesame seeds and jeera.
3. Add butter and mix all the ingredients nicely.

4. Dry grind coconut and add it to the flour mixture.
5. Mix it well and add water. (little by little) and prepare the thick dough.
6. One needs to kneed the dough well or kodubale might break while preparing.

7. Now divide the dough in to small portion.
8. Take each small portion and roll it with your finger like a big thread.
9. Join the two ends and press a little slightly and arrange them in a plate.

10. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add oil. Let it get hot.
11. Fry kodubale on low and medium flame on both sides.

12.Remove from the pan and put it on a kitchen tissue. So that it absorbs extra oil.
13. Repeat the same with remaining dough. At time you can fry 4 to 5 kodubales

14. Let the kodubale cool. Put them in a airtight box or bottle and serve as you wish.
15. Serve with cup of coffee or tea.

Note :

You should be careful while preparing the dough. Do not make the dough too soft or watery. Kodubale might turn soft and it may absorb more oil. Adding spices more/less is optional. No need to add more butter. Adding hot oil instead of butter is optional. Adding coconut to the mixture is optional.
Time : 30 Minutes
20 to 25 Kodubale can be prepared. (According to the size).
