Kodubale and Awards

Preparation time: 15 mns | Cooking time: 45 mins

This is a snack from Karnataka. I've had this numerous times but I have never tried making it myself. Traditionally it is made into larger rings but the smaller format is widely available.

Rice flour-2cups
All-purpose flour (maida)-1/2cup
Dry coconut(copra) or desiccated coconut-1/2cup
Fried gram powder (pottukadala)-2tsp
Red chilli powder-1tbsp
Sesame seeds-2tsp
Asafoetida-a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil for deep fry

Fry all-purpose flour and coconut slightly for few minutes. Then add the rice flour, fried gram powder, red chilli powder, asafoetida, sesame seeds and salt and mix well. Heat oil and add to the mixture. Add enough water to make a dough. 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. Drop the kodubales into the oil and fry on low-medium heat. They are done 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.

Now here comes the awards.
