• 1 cup – Rice flour
• 1/2 cup – grated coconut, fresh/frozen
• 1/4 cup – hurigadale/putaani/channa dalia, powdered

• 2 tsp – chilli powder, medium spice
• 2 tsp – oil
• 1/4 tsp – Mustard Seeds

  1. Grind coconut in a blender without adding water to make it a fine powder.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Heat 2 tsp oil and add to the mixture. Add very little water and make a dough by kneading well.
  4. Make small balls from the dough and roll them into strands of desired size with your hands.
  5. Moisten your hands and join one end of the strand to the other to form a circle.
  6. Heat oil in a kadai/wok, drop the kodubales into the oil and fry on low-medium heat.
