I worked as a banker for 17 years. Now I am working as a freelancer for indexing. I love cooking tasty, healthy meals, and staying fit.

Some Information About Goli Baje or Maida Fritters:

They are tasty tea-time snacks that can be made in 15-20 minutes. Tiny fritters are formed with the batter made of maida, yogurt, grated ginger, chopped green chilies, chopped curry leaves, coriander leaves, chopped onion, cumin seeds, cooking soda, and salt. These ingredients are combined in a mixing bowl to get a loose and thick batter.

A teaspoonful batter is dropped into the hot oil. You can use your fingers for making the fritters. These fritters are porous inside with a crunchy outer shell. They are light and very tempting. People serve them hot with coconut chutney. They are a regular tea-time snack in Mangalore. Hence, they are also known as "Mangalore Bonda" or "Mangalore Bajji".

Though maida/plain flour is not considered beneficial for health, once in a while you can indulge in eating mouth-watering snacks like this to satisfy your taste buds. If you look at the other ingredients used in the recipe, most of them are good for health. Go ahead and give a try to these yummy fritters!
