With kids at home, it is usual to have many dry snacks such as chakli and kodbole on the shelves. These are loved by children.The fast and mechanical life has brought a stand still to some of the routine work made by older generation.Very often, we buy from stores , but it is always good if we can make it at home. Nothing is more healthier !
Kodbole is a small, coiled,crisp fried snack made of rice flour. This can be easily prepared. There is no pre requisite of roasting and grinding. It can be stored for a long time. Tasty and crunchy, ideal as a tea time snack.
- Rice flour 4 cups
- semolina 1/2 cup
- green chilly 6
- fresh coconut 1/2 cup
- cumin 1tsp
- butter 1tbsp
- salt to taste
- asafoetida 1/4 tsp
- water for kneading
- oil for frying
Sieve the flour. Add semolina and butter to it. Grind coconut, green chilly and cumin together. Add it to the flour and mix well. Do not add water. Just mix the dry ingredients. Later, add little water and knead to a dough of hard consistency.
Take a ball of the dough, roll into elongated shape. Then turn into a coil. Make a few of them and keep aside. Heat oil in a kadai. Once it is hot, keep the fire low and slowly let them into the oil. Fry on moderately high until golden in colour. Remove them onto a tissue paper. Kodbole are ready to binge.
Repeat the same with the rest of the dough. When cool, store them in an airtight jar.
Note : You will be making the snacks by rolling with your hand. Hence, the dough should be firm.
