Onion Bhajis, are not a traditional Indian side dish but they are a favourite with almost everyone. So next time you make one of your famous curries then why not try these as a side dish.
For best results use Chick pea flour (Gram Flour) but if you don’t have this then use normal plain flour.
1 Large white onion
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 knob of butter
2 tablespoons of plain flour (if you have chick pea flour then use that instead)
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of garam masala
1 crushed clove of garlic
Salt and pepper
1 litre of vegetable oil (to fry in)
- Peel and slice the onion and cook on a low heat in butter and oil for 10 minutes, occasionally stirring until soft and golden.
- Meanwhile mix to together the flour, turmeric, Garam Masala and garlic with enough water to make a thick batter. (approx 150-200ml).
- Remove the onions and place in the batter and season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
- Heat the oil to 180C and using a table spoon drop 1 tablespoon full of Bhaji mix into the oil taking care not to splash yourself.
- Cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
- Remove and drain on kitchen paper, serve straight away.
