GoLi baje(Mangalore bajjis)

I have no idea how this name has come. May be because of the round shape of this dish it is called “GoLi” and “baje” is a deep fried dish. This is one of the most popular dishes from South Kanara (my neighbouring district). But I havn’t seen this much at my native. I tasted it few times at my college canteen. But after that I had forgotten about it. Sometime back, one of my readers requested to post this recipe. So I tried it here. I can’t say this is the most authentic way of making GoLi baje, I have picked this recipe from the Kannada weekly magazine.

Also have a look at Baab’s GoLi baje.
