Kodubale/ Crispy Doughnuts

I have atleast tried 4 times in last 2 years to make crispy kodubales with the taste I had in mind. Alas! I had failed every time. Recently R's aunt visited us and she gave me this recipe which was a hit. Here you go with the recipe for Kodubale/Crispy Doughnuts .......

You need the following: (Use the same cup to measure all ingredients)
Akki Hittu/Rice Flour-2 cups
Putani Pudi/Hurgadle pudi/bhunahua chana dal powder/pottukadalai Podi-little less than 1/2 cup
Onakobbari Pudi/Dry grated coconut powder- 1/2 cup
Onamenasinakayi pudi/Red chilli powder-2 tsp
Bili ellu/White sesame seeds- 1tsp

Enne/Oil- 1/4 cup hot oil
Salt- as required.
Water for making dough




1. Mix all dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add hot oil.
2. Mix oil and rest of the flour starting from the center and finally incorporating the whole flour.
3. Take a cup full of flour and little water to make a firm dough. Take a clean plate and add a drop of oil and rub the surface of the plate. Pull out little dough and roll it to make cigar sticks. Join the ends of the stick to make a circle.
4. Heat oil on medium flame. Deep fry all these circles/kodubales in hot oil till they turn golden brown.Drain on a paper towel. Enjoy them when they are at room temperature with your favorite hot drink.

You are making me drool here. My mom makes the best kodubale. Very similar to your recipe, but we use fresh coconut and add some chiroti rave too. I think I'll make some tomorrow.

Aaha! Eshtu chennaagide..... One of my all time favorites.... Making ruled out for me, as basically I am lazy... If somebody makes them for me... I am happy..... But otherwise I often buy them or get to taste them when few of my aunts prepare....
It is nice to munch on them, when u feel like....

Wonderful tea time snacks. But I have never ever got it right ! Also, that danger of bursting in the oil !

Even I have not had success with Kodubales before; one way or the other they become soft inside. I will keep this recipe in mind.

thanks for letting me know about the blog/website that has copied my recipe Lakshmi. it is such an unnecessary waste of time to deal with them.

I tried this, the taste was very good, but it kept breaking when I was rolling it. Could hardly roll it into a circle because it was breaking apart. Any idea what might be wrong? Too much putani pudi perhaps?

@ Anonymous,

I guess so! Mine came out very well. Can't think of anything else at the moment.
