Goli baje | Mangalore Bajji

How to make Mangalore bajji | goli baje?

 

Ingredients:
Maida - 1 cup
Rice flour: 2 tbsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp or less
Green chillies - 2-3 nos (minced)
Ginger: 1/2 tsp, grated
Sour curd | Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves: 5-6, finely chopped
Grated coconut: 1 tsp, fresh or frozen
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp, optional
Salt - according to taste
Water - As needed
Oil - for deep frying



Method:
  • Combine all the ingredients (of course, except oil) and make a paste of it, using curd and water. 

  • Batter consistency should be like the medhu vada (a little thicker than the idli batter)
  • Keep it aside for an hour.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and when oil is hot, prepare the bajji.
  • Preparing the bajes: just like you fry any other bajji - Scoop out about tbsp of batter & drop it in the oil. 
  • Fry the bajes till they turn golden brown in color
  • Serve it hot - My hubby says it tastes better with hot coffee. I couldn't agree more with him :)
