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 as “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. These 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 takes 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.
