How To Make Onion Bhaji


* 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


Step 1:

Heat the oil

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

Step 2:

Make the batter

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.

Step 3:

Check the oil

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

Step 4:

Fry the bhaji

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.

Step 5:

Season and serve

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!
