This onion bhaji recipe was an instant hit in our household despite having no gram flour. The spicy snack went well with refreshing raita and a small side salad. A squeeze of lemon was all that was needed for a delicious starter.
Onion bhajis are usually made with gram and/or rice flour which we didn't have. But… the overriding spicy crunch more than compensated for the lack of authentic ingredients. Buying ingredients can soon become an expensive pastime, and we try to use what we have available.
Take a look at how we made these tasty morsels:
1 medium white onion
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
a good sprinkle of cayenne pepper
40g plain flour
a little salt and pepper
Slice the onions quite finely.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add enough water until you have a
batter the consistency of double cream.
Add the onions to the batter. The mixture should be quite sticky and the onions well coated.
Take clumps of the bhaji mix and shallow fry until brown. Turn the mixture carefully so it doesn't break up.
Serve with a refreshing low-calorie raita sauce topped with toasted (dry fried) cumin seeds.
Be who you want to be.
