Goli Baje/ Mangalore Bajji

 

 

I was introduced to the snack known as Goli Baje during my college days. We were served goli baje as a tea time snack. It is a popular snack in Karnataka and is also known as Mangalore Bajji.

Here is the recipe. This snack is pretty much similar to pakoda but one needs to make the batter a few hours in advance. Bits of chilli, coconut etc are added to the batter. Those who do not like to bite into these, can grind and add to the batter to get the flavour.
