Mosaru Kodubale Recipe | Mosaru Kodubale Recipe with step by step photos | How to do Karnataka style Mosaru Kodubale| Majjige kodubale recipe
Today I have for you a famous Karnataka special snack – ” Mosaru kodubale or Majjige kodubale “. It is spicy, slightly sour , delicious, crisp from outside and little soft from inside. “Bale” in Kannada means bangles and “kodu” is horns. Since this snack is ring-shaped, I assume someone named it “horn-shaped Bangles”. And “Mosaru” means, Curd. Since in this version of kodubale , there is addition of curd, it’s known as mosaru kodubale. Unlike the regular kodubale , these cannot be stored for weeks. Crispy from outside and little soft from inside, they are so addictive and delicious.
I had earlier shared the typical more popular version of Kodubale . However, this recipe is completely different from that. Mosaru kodubale is popular only in few regions in Karnataka. This kodubale are slightly sour, spicy and each bite of it is so tasty. For best taste, don’t skip sour buttermilk/curd. This is what makes the dish to a different level. Addition of spices like chilli, hing, herbs etc adds to the taste. Enjoy hot !!
To fry these Majjige Kodubale I used Idhayam Mantra Groundnut oil , which made the snack tastier and more authentic. I loved how fresh and flavourful this oil tastes. As it does not reach the highest smoking point, IDHAYAM MANTRA keeps your food carcinogen-free and hence I can re use this oil for making dosa, sabzi , tadka etc. To know more about this oil, click here
Few variations and points to note while making Mosaru Kodubale:
- Use sour curd/buttermilk for best taste. Else they taste bland.
- You can also add 2-3 tbsp of soaked moong dal to the dough
- As a variation, you could also add little chilli powder , finely chopped onion.
