This Kodubale recipe is one of the most popular snacks from Karnataka, a southern Indian state. These munchies are called Kodubale because of their shape as Kodu means horns and BaLe means bangles/bracelets in Kannada. It is made using rice flour and ground roasted gram powder and deep fried. The soft dough is rolled like long cigars of ¼ inch pencil thick and then shaped like a bangle by pressing the ends to shape like little horns. I find Kodubale very additive and it is never easy to stop munching them after tasting one! Kodubale is mildly spicy and has very nice crunch to it. There are many recipes and this recipe from my Amma works just right for me as I like them to be crisp on the out and soft, melt in mouth kind of texture within when we bite into them.
