It’s a throw back recipe meaning I am updating an old post with super new pictures and content. I am going back to the most searched recipe ever on my blog that is goli baje or Mangalore bajji. The original post dates back to Aug 3, 2012 which was just few days after the blog’s birth. Those were my initial days with blog where I was trying to figure out things like how to photograph food, what props to use, what should be the size of picture, how to create good content etc. I had zero knowledge about such stuff and photography was very far from my understanding. But, but I have learnt things along the way and still learning to do it better.
The original pictures were impossible and so does the content. I have hidden the picture at the end of post for you to laugh as you scroll down.
Lets head on to the hero of this post=> Goli baje. It is an amazingly awesome, deep fried snack which is most probably common in Udupi and Mangalore households and restaurants. It is puffy, airy and very light with very crisp exterior. On top of that, you never know how many of these goodies you have actually gulped over. Yes, Goli baje is so very addictive and delicious along with coconut chutney.
It would be very fair on me to instruct you beforehand that you need to eat goli baje very hot in order to enjoy it’s actual deliciousness. The cool, not even warm ones would give you the sense of chewy thing in your mouth. Seriously, never do this mistake.
The only factor which I don’t love in this Mangalore bajji is, it is made up of Maida which I hate using often in my cooking. The flour doesn’t sound to be healthy and I pull myself back when I crave for such a tasty snack. But guys once in few months doesn’t harm you much and once in a while give your hungry self an awesome feast and enjoy. 🙂 🙂
