Kodubale

What can I say about kodubale, they are just too good a snack. Presenting traditional, crisp-karara ring muruku a.k.a kodubale from Karnataka. These fun to eat kodubale can be eaten during tea time orĀ  when it’s raining outside or even without any reason. Do you need a reason to have fun!
The measurements for making kodubale is absolutely the key. Or they will turn out soft and chewy. But do not be scared to try these fun snacks. Brighten up your tea/coffee time with a piece or 2 (or 3 or 4 or 5..ok now I should stop).

Kodubale reminds me of old alley stores of Bangalore, we used to buy 100 or 200 Gm packets and savour them for a week. Make these and share these with your folks and friends.
Try other fun snacks from FOI – benne muruku, benne biscuit, baked nippattu etc…
