Goli Baje (Mangalore Baje)
Goli Baje is one of the most popular snacks in Manglore side. It’s crisp in outer layer and soft inside and slightly elastic. It’s the most common evening snack, served with sambar and/or chutney. This used to be favourite snack, but after stopping maida products I never prepared this. Today after a long time I wanted to eat so prepared this at home.
My mom used to prepare this best and this is one of her signature dishes.
Maida -- 1 cup
Curd -- ½ cup
Ginger -- 1” piece finely chopped
Green chilly -- 3 finely chopped
Baking soda -- ¼ tsp
Salt to taste
Curry leaves few
Oil for deep fry
· Mix maida, curd, baking soda and salt to make batter. If required add water, the consistency of the dough should be thicker than dosa batter thinner than chapathi dough. If the batter is not of right consistency goli baje may become hard and consume more oil.
· Add chopped ginger, green chilly and curry leaves chopped and mix it well.
· Heat oil in kadai, wet your fingers with water and scoop out small sized batter with had and drop it into oil. They puff up in size.
· Cook in medium heat turn them around till they are fried golden brown. Serve them hot with coconut chutney and strong coffee.
