A visit to Mangalore is incomplete without tasting Mangalore Bonda or Goli Bazo a delicacy that will keep you asking for more. It isn’t for the health conscious and the diet lovers. Well, I believe in ‘when in Mangalore be a Mangalorean’ (which I am).
- 250 gms maida/All purpose flour
- 6 tbsps besan/gram flour
- 2 tbsps rice flour
- 8 green chillies
- 2 inch piece of ginger
- 2 sprigs curry leaves finely chopped
- 5 tsps sugar
- 1 heaped tsp jeera
- 1/4 tsp soda bi carb
- 200 ml thick curd
- Oil to fry the Goli bazo
Take maida, besan and curd in a bowl. Grind the chillies, ginger, sugar and salt to a paste. Add the jeera and grind it just once. Add it to the Besan, maida and curd and mix thoroughly. Drop in the chopped curry leaves, soda bicarb, mix and allow to rest for an hour. The batter would have risen well. Add the rice flour. Give it a good whisk. The batter should be thick as of dropping consistency or it will absorb oil. Heat oil and drop in small portions of the batter. Deep fry to a golden brown. Serve with green chutney.

- 1/4 tsp tamarind paste

First powder the Daalia. Then add the remaining ingredients and grind to a make a smooth but thick chutney.
