Mangalore Bajji

I have no clue as to why this called so...despite the name, i love this one. This is also called Maida Kunuku, curd bajji! My paati would do this for me every time, i went to visit her or whenever i really felt like eating something nice :).. she knew what i was hinting at :D..We would not have a stock of maida at home, (its not healthy's command), so i would just go get a lil stock from shop & come! I was missing my home and thinking about everything ..then decided i would do this..

Mangalore Bajji/Maida Kunuku
Another click...

Its this soft, that it actually melts ;)

1. Maida - 1 cup
2. Curd - 1/2 cup
3. Onions - 1/4 cup(finely chopped)
4. Green Chillies - 2-3
5. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
6. Baking soda - a pinch
7. Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp(optional)
9. Salt - to taste
10. Oil - for deep frying

Preparation Time!!
1. In a bowl, add maida,baking soda, red chilli powder, green chillies, onions and mix
2. Heat a pan, add 1tsp of oil and once warm, add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add it to the bowl
3. Then add curd and make a batter. The batter should not be watery like we do for bajji. It should be such that, when dropped with a spoon, it should take a second or two to fall down, slightly thick ( hope i am able to explain)
4. Add very lil water if the curd doesn't suffice to make the batter
5. Add salt and mix well. Once the oil is hot enough, add small blobs of batter and fry till golden brown

You don't need any accompaniments with this! Tastes good plain...

*You could replace Maida, with Wheat flour ( Atta) and follow the same step..its tastes good then too! This is quick to make, especially when you have people drop in home suddenly & as per Murphy...that would be the day, when the snacks in your pantry is over ... :D
** Else just do it for yourself & enjoy with tea/coffee

Serving - Makes around 20 odd bajji's
Duration - 20 - 25 minutes
