The kodu bale you see in the photograph is one of a kind and is the size of a doughnut. I have never seen anything like this before and was having it for the first time. The dry stuffing and herbs were terribly tasty. My friend got it from Vidyarthee Bhavan eatery near Lal Bagh. This place is over 40 years old and famous for its dosa. Bangalore dosa's were served with a dollop of butter either inside the dosa or in a small cup. Quality of food was above par and so were the prices. My mom and her cousin had spent a considerable time hanging out at VB's during their growing-up years.
My friend did not know what a kara bun looked like and ended up getting me stuffed bun made with potatoes, which i gave away after a bite. Breads like these need to be finished off right out of the oven, and can get wasted if they are stored.
