Onion Bhajis are essentially onion fritters that are seasoned with beautifully frangent spices. They are a popular side dish and starter in India, they can also be eaten as a snack. I decided to make this recipe to complete my Indian vegan “fakeaway”. This recipe would make a great side dish for my Rogan josh recipe paired with my Easy Mango Chutney.
I suggest making a quick yogurt and mint dip and squeezing a little bit of lemon juice on top. I hope you enjoy this very simple recipe!
- 3 large red onions.
- 50 chickpea flour.
- Tbsp normal flour.
- 100ml of water.
- 1 tsp cumin powder.
- 1 tsp curry powder.
- 1 tsp coriander powder.
- 1 tsp garam masala powder.
- 1 tsp salt.
- Firstly, preheat an oven to 180 degrees.
- Next, dice the onions into thin pieces, add them into a bowl and drizzle them with a little bit of vegetable oil.
- Then, sprinkle the onions with salt, season them with the spices and mix thoroughly.
- Now, make a slurry by mixing the chickpea flour and the water together.
- Then, sprinkle the onions with flour and incorporate the flour slurry until all the onions are salted.
- Next, grease a cupcake pan with oil and mould the onions into the holes. Note: alternatively you can mould them into a disc shape and shallow fry them in a pan for 2-3 minutes each side.
- Bake them in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes (turning them over in 15-minute intervals).
