Mangalore Bajji also known as Goli Baje is a south Karnataka dish. I used to regularly have it Airlines Hotel in Bangalore, I would love to go there with mama and play in the swing and slide there and have Plain Dosa and the Mangalore Bajji's, they would not make it everyday and I would be so disappointed when they did not have them. Now blogging has made it so easy to get a recipe and make it on your own.
I used to do a google search for Mangalore Bajji and would not get the right recipe and searching for it I learnt that they are also called Goli Baje, and then I got the recipe. I followed Ramya of Mane Adige's recipe, it was delicious and tasted the same. We had it with some tea in the evening, the best part is it is so easy. I did not make too many changes to the recipe except I added about 1 tbsp coconut since in Airlines I remember them having coconut pieces. I actually forgot to add the baking soda in the first batch and they were hard. Then I added the soda and wola...

Thank you Ramya We loved them and am so glad I finally got the recipe for it.

Hi Medha,

I am so excited to know that even you are a fan of the Airlines hotel food. As a kid, I used to frequently visit that place and eat lots of dosas and the yummiest sambhar. I still remember the double-sided swing that used to move side ways! :-)
I didnt order Mangalore bhajji there , I didnt know about it then. However, I have eaten these in a friends house and remember loving them. Couldnt find the recipe for so long as I didnt know what its called :-)

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe and bringing back sweet memories!
