Goli Baje/ Mangalore Bajji

4.20 from 5 votes

Goli Baje /Mangalore Bajji is a very popular street snack from Udupi and Mangalore region.This is prepared using Plain flour. I have used unbleached plain flour.With the onset of monsoon there is a great relief from the scorching heat. The first showers , lush greenery everywhere and the distinctive smell of the wet mud reminds me of my childhood days when we used to play in the rain .The wet weather calls for some yummy fritters or spicy chaat and piping hot Masala chai. Total Bliss!!!!!
