Mangalore bajji is the adapted name for goli baje. Goli baje got the name of mangalore bajji when it became popular in other cities of karnataka. Goli baje is a favourite evening snack recipe in most of popular restaurants of udupi and mangalore. It is basically made of maida or plain flour and is shaped into round balls. I love this bajji or bonda whatever you call. I have made this so many times other anything else. Do not confuse goli baje with mysore bonda. Goli baje or mangalore bajji and mysore bonda are completely different. But both taste equally good.
