Kodubale is one of the famous snacks from Karnataka. It is made on many festive Occassions. Diwali the festival of lights is around the corner. To celebrate this festival one of the snack item on my menu is Kodubale.I have used Hyacinth beans which enhances the taste of kodubale.It is very easy and yummy snack which can be prepared in advance and stored in an airtight container.
My Contribution for the #62nd #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #DiwaliSpecial-Savories!!! is Avarekai Kodubale / Hyacinth Bean Spicy rings.
1.5 Cups Rice Flour
1.5 Cups Plain Flour /Maida
2 Tbsp Ghee / Clarified butter
6 Dry Red Chillies
1 Cup boiled Avarekai / Hyancinth Beans
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp hot Oil
Oil for Frying
Water for mixing
1/4 Tsp Hing/ Asafoetida
1 Cup grated fresh coconut.
Sieve the flours in a wide bottom dish. Add ghee and mix well. Coarsely grind the hyancinth beans /Avarekai ,grated coconut and red chillies.Add this mixture to the flour and mix well. Add 1Tbsp of sizzling hot oil ,salt,hing and mix well. Slowly add water as required to form a soft dough.Ensure it does not become soggy.Let the dough rest for 15 -20 mins.
Take a lemon size dough and roll it using your palm into a thick rope.Hold one end and form circles (about 3 to 4 as seen in the pic).Repeat the process for the balance dough.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan. Deep fry these rings on medium flame.Once both sides turn brown remove them and place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil if any.
Enjoy this crisp Kodubale with some hot filter Kapi or Masala Chai!!!!
