Spabbit’s Onion Bhajis

img_4777These Bhajis are super easy & quick to make, using little ingredients, and are fantastic when served with a little salad, and Spabbit’s Mint Sauce.

Sometimes I’ll whip up a batch as a quick spicy snack – so easy and cheap to do – I’ll never buy them from a takeaway again!

Ingredients

  • Oil for frying
  • 2 Onions
  • 80g Gram Flour
  • 2 tsp Tandoori Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Hot Chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • Splash Lemon Juice
  • 50 ml Water

Method

Heat the oil to maximum temperature, either in a deep pan, or in a fryer.

Whilst the oil is heating up, chop the onions into whatever size lumps you like, think smallish chunks or slices. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the other ingredients bar the water.

Throw in the chunks of onion, and ensure they’re thoroughly coated. Gradually add the water and mix, eventually when mixed well and all the water has been added, the lumps should be sticking together with a gooey batter coating.

Take a tea-spoon at a time of the mixture and drop in to the hot oil. Make sure the oil is deep enough for the bhajis to float around during cooking. Stir around / flip over during cooking to ensure they’re all cooked evenly. Cook for around 3 minutes, or longer depending on the size. Take out and drain on paper-towel.
