Kodubale---Rice and cucumber savory snack

I prepare this Kodbale for Janmastami....My so love to eat this kind of snacks....this is a snack my mom and my granny use to prepare ....any time,,because its very east and simple to prepare.I never had tried it by my own,,So this time decided to prepare it for this festival. I don't have all the clicks this time ,,as i was bit busy in festival preparation.

Rice 1 cup
Cucumber 1/2 grated
salt 1/2tsp
Sesame seed 1TBSP
Cumin seed 1 tsp
Pure Ghee(clarified butter) 1tsp
Oil for deep frying
water (to grind the rice)1/4 cup(use more if required)

Soak the rice in water 5-6hours. Drains out the water from the rice and transfer to a blender.half blend it,add the grated cucumber and Blend them together and make smooth batter(cucumber itself is having more water so add water only if needed),pour the batter in to a heavy bottom pan,add salt,sesame seed ,cumin and Ghee(clarified butter)stir and keep it on the gas stove.

Turn on the heat(medium flame),keep on stir the batter nicely until this become like dough(it will absorb the water contents and will become dry)then turn of the heat and let it 15 mins to cool down.

Once it is cool ,apply oil(cooking oil or coconut oil)on your palm and knead it to make dough(it should not be soft, just as like rice rooti dough).

Take a small piece of dough and and make a long string by using your palm.
Now give it spiral shape by turning it in your hand. preapre 8-10 kodbale and then .

Heat oil in frying pan.Add 6-8 kodbale one by one and then fry them both the side till it turns to light brown(it will take aprox 4-5 min fry properly).

once done, take out from oil and keep on kitchen tissue.....

Tips:If the dough becomes too soft and sticky you can add rice flour (add as much required) and prepare dough.
