Mysore Bajji-A tasty Karnataka Delicacy

Mysore Bajji

Call it Mysore Bajji, Mangalore Bonda/Bajji, Goli Bajji. It’s one and the same. This is one of my favourites in Fast Food Hotels. Initially none of us in our family used to eat this as we were not aware of this. We just thought that it’s just another ordinary Bonda which is eaten in the evening. One fine day during my schooling time my dad took us to this awesome “Janatha Hotel” for an evening snack. I always used to settle either with idli or dosa. But that don’t remember how and why we had asked for this Mysore Bajji. There were 4 Egg sized hot bondas in golden colour served with delicious Sambar and Chutney. That’s it whenever we go towards that hotel on evenings Mysore Bajji became a must for us.

Even now I first check out for Mysore Bajjis and I even have it in my office canteen. It is so easy to prepare and tastes great because of curd. I personally tried this twice and it was moderately ok for the first time and was a huge success for the second time J.

So let me share this successful recipe with my audience now. To prepare Mysore Bajji it is better to prepare the batter 7-8 hrs. in advance just like idli dosa batter. This allows the flour to absorb the curd and enhances the taste.

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour (Maida) : 1.5 Cups

Sour Curd  : 2 cups

Water : To achieve the consistency

Green Chillies : 4-5 finely chopped

Cumin Seeds : 1.5 tsp.

Small Coconut Chunks (Optional) : 1.5 tsp.

Salt : To Taste

Baking Soda : A pinch

Oil : For frying

Method

  • Pour the flour in a large mixing bowl
  • To this add on sliced Green Chillies, Cumin Seeds, Salt, Coconut Chunks and mix well.
  • To this mixture add on curd slowly little by little and mix well.
  • The Batter should be smooth without any lumps and should be of the vada batter consistency. The picture below gives you a better idea on how it should look like.

  • Add in Baking Soda and give it a nice stir and leave it aside. Make sure you don’t add too much of Baking Soda as it would lead to more oil absorption. This is just to get the fluffy texture.
  • If have prepared the batter overnight store it in the refrigerator and keep it outside atleast one hour before frying
  • Now heat oil in a pan
  • Once hot lower the flame, take small quantity of batter in your hand and drop it in the oil. Once you have put 4 or five bajjis in the pan increase the flame to medium and fry well turning them from one side to another.

  • Once it turns to golden brown, reduce the flame and take them out slowly and place them over the paper towel spread in a basket.
  • Repeat this process batch wise and until you get the desired number of Bajjis

Notes : If you are unable to put the batter using your hands into the hot oil, here is a nice tip which I learnt it from cooking channel. Take a big spoon, scoop up the batter and drop the batter in the oil. As simple as that, No fear of spilling oil on hands and no messing up of hands.
