Mangalore Bajji Ingredients

All-Purpose Flour (Maida): is the main ingredient of this recipe. It forms the base of the fritters giving a crispy, crunchy outer texture to the Bajjis.

Yogurt (Curd): is added to the batter to make it airy and fluffy while also adding a tanginess to the bajjis. The acidity of the yogurt helps in the fermentation process resulting in a light airy batter.

Baking Soda: is a leavening agent; when added to the batter, it reacts with the acidic yogurt (curd), adding lightness and fluffiness to the Bajjis.

Salt & Sugar: are added to the Bajji batter to balance the overall flavor of the dish.

Spices: such as grated ginger, chopped curry leaves, chopped coriander leaves, and chopped green chilies for enhancing the overall texture and taste of the fritters.

Chopped Coconut: adds some texture to the light, spongy fritters.

Oil: for deep frying the bajjis.
