Goli Baje | Mangalore Bajji

By 22:42:00 , ,

Goli Baje is a popular snack in Mangalore and Udupi region. Goli Baje is also called Mangalore Bajji in Bengaluru and other cities. It is very soft, tastes delicious and goes well with tea for a evening snack. Every time I visit my native place in Udupi, I have Goli Baje from Hotel Kushi at Santhekatte. Just tastes awesome!

Goli Baje is easy to make with all purpose flour and curd/ yogurt as main ingredients. All other ingredients are optional to enhance its taste and make it spicy. This is an authentic traditional recipe. I bet once you try this and eat it, you'll make it regularly at home.

Preparation time : 10 mins
Cooking time : 15 mins
Fermentation time : 15 mins- 3 hrs


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cups
Yogurt/ Curd - 1 cup
Green chilies, chopped finely - 2 medium(adjust according to your taste)
Ginger, chopped finely - 2 tsp
Curry leaves, chopped finely  - 2 sticks
Coconut, grated/ small pieces - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

  1. Mix all purpose flour, green chillies, Ginger, curry leaves, coconut and salt in a bowl.
  2. Add yogurt/curd and mix well so that there aren't any lumps of flour.
  3. Let it rest for an hour or two. This makes sure you get fluffy and soft Goli Baje.
  4. Heat a Wok / Kadai and add oil for deep fry.
  5. Let oil heat up before you start making Baje's. 
  6. Take lemon sized dough and drop it in oil.
  7. Flip it to fry on both sides till golden brown.
  8. Remove from oil and place it on paper towel to get rid of excess oil.
  9. Serve it hot with any of your favorite Chutney's.

My kids love this if I don't add green chilies.
You could add a little baking powder, if you want to fry Goli Baje's within an hour after dough is made.
