Onion Bhajis

Onion Bhajis

  • 1 large onion , sliced
  • 200 g chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder ,
  • 2 tbsp rice flour
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp coriander powder
  • some salt
  • 100 ml water
  • 750 ml vegetable oil
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 slotted spoon
  • tray lined with paper towels

Put the oil into the pan and place it on a medium-high heat.

In a bowl, combine the chickpea flour, rice flour, baking powder, chilli, turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt and the water. Mix it together well and add the sliced onion.

Check the temperature of the oil by dropping a little batter into it. If it fries slowly, it is at the right temperature.

Carefully drop spoons of batter into the oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan, which will make them stick together. Fry them for about 1-2 minutes or until the batter becomes a lovely golden brown. Remove them, place them to drain on the paper-lined tray, and repeat until all the bhaji are cooked.

Sprinkle over a little salt and your onion bhaji are ready to serve. They make a perfect appetiser and go well with coriander chutney or cucumber raita, both of which can be found on our website. Enjoy!
