Tea Time Snack


This one is a Mangalorian classic tea time snack…Locally called the “Golibajje”. Used to watch my mom prepare this during my school days during tea time and now i m trying to recreate it in my own way!

Ingredients:|Preparation Time:20mins|


  • Buttermilk 1 cup
  • Plain Flour(Maida) 1 1/2 cup
  • Sugar 4 tspn
  • Salt 1 tspn
  • Baking Soda 1/4 tspn
  • Green chillies 2 (finely chopped)
  • Coriander Leaves a few finely chopped
  • Oil enough to deep fry

Method:|Cooking Time:5 to 7 mins|


Add sugar,salt and the finely chopped green chillies into the buttermilk and mix it well  and then add the plain flour into it mixing slowly to make a gooey kind of a mix(you can adjust the consistency by adding more water if required),then add the baking soda and chopped coriander leaves and let it rest for 15 mins. 

Heat enough oil in a deep pan to fry this mix. Drop in a small dumpling into the oil and fry a few of them at a time,fry it for approximately 5 to 7 minutes until it turns dark golden brown in color. Drain it out into an absorbent paper and serve it hot with tea.It has a very distinct flavor,so generally it s eaten straight and doesn t need any kind of dip.


Enjoy the tea time snack:)
