Goli Bajji, easy and simple evening snacks from Udupi, Manglore region in Karnataka State, India. Its deep fried curd mixed flour dough and its puffy airy and very crispy outside. Should serve this hot with coconut chutney then only you get the exact taste. I loved this delicious snack, so here is recipe of you all to try. I think in traditional recipe they dont add onions but I have added chopped onions.

Take a medium size bowl and add 1 cup curd , sugar, salt, baking soda and mix well. Now add all purpose flour and mix well to a smooth batter. It will be thick batter and to be elastic and well in dropping consistency. Now add chopped coriander leaves, curry leaves, ginger, chopped green chili and grated coconut. Combine everything well and cover and rest for 3 to 4 hours.
Take a kadai or deep frying pan keep on the medium high flame with sufficient oil to fry the bajjies. Once the oil is hot enough reduce flame and make lemon size bajjis, drop them one by one to oil. Fry until the bajji turns golden brown. Remove the hajjis carefully from oil. Drain oil properly and serve hot with coconut chutney.
