When I choose Kodubale
for Indian Cooking Challenge
, I had selected two versions. One from Suma and another from Lathamma. I tried both versions back to back and ended up with too much of Kodubale on hand, one because I almost tried using the same proportion and second one recipe failed on me. So had to improvise. Suma's recipe worked out correctly for us, however something went wrong when I was making Lathamma's recipe.
I am sure the recipe works out perfectly, something I did must have gone wrong. So I had to save the snack from going waste. The snack turned out soft and wasn't crunchy. So I had to resort to using other methods to make it crunchy. The taste was very good, only factor was that it wasn't crunchy. I ended up microwaving it for 10 mins and it ended up crunchy. I was very happy I was able to get the snack to munch.
