  • 1 cup All purpose flour / Maida
  • ¼ cup Besan / kadalai maavu/ chick pea flour
  • ½ cup Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoon Coconut pieces I used grated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger finely grated
  • 2 teaspoon Green chilies finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – to deep fry


  • Combine the flours, baking soda, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the yogurt to it and mix well. Now slowly add water to make this into a thick batter. The batter should neither be too thick or too thin. It should be able to fall slowly when dropped from a ladle.
  • Cover the batter and leave it to ferment overnight or about 8 hrs. If your yogurt is sour, the fermentation would take lesser time. In my case I had to leave it outside for about 8 hrs.
  • Now add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and when the oil is hot enough add a tablespoon full of batter into the oil.
  • Fry these on both sides until golden brown in small batches and drain on a paper towel lined dish.
  • Serve the Goli Bajje hot with chutney or ketchup!
