I have been meaing to post an onion bhaji recipe for a while as they are a great easy treat for people with various food intolerances. Aurelia’s comment (on Farinata recipe) earlier this week reminded me.
Onion bhaji ingredients :
- 4oz Gram flour (chick pea/besan flour)
- 2 onions, finely sliced
- 1 tsp fresh coriander, chopped
- ½ tsp of turmeric
- chillis (to taste), de-seeded and finely chopped
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup of water
- Oil, for frying
Onion bhaji recipe steps :
Sieve the gram flour into a bowl and then add all the other dry ingredients – mix together thoroughly.
Add the water gradually, mixing it in a bit at a time. You want a mixture that is just gloopy enough to dribble off a spoon. Put the mixture in the fridge until ready to fry.
Deep fry batches of the onion bhaji mixture for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. I mould a tablespoon of the mixture in a ball before frying to help keep the shape.
