    These are scrummy...;):D

    Fry Light
    1 Onion finely chopped
    6oz cooked and chopped potatoes
    8oz canned chick peas (drained and shelled)
    1 beaten egg
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp of bombay mixed spice (I couldn't find this so I used curry powder)
    1 tsp mixed herbs
    Salt and Pepper

    There is also a raita recipe to serve them with:

    1/2 cucumber (chop and put in a colander and sprinkle with salt - leave for 30 mins, dry well and transfer to a bowl)
    4oz LF natural yogurt
    4 chopped spring onions

    Add the yogurt and spring onions to the yogurt, chill until ready to serve.

    For the bhajis:

    Using fry light, fry the onion for 5 mins until tender, transfer to a bowl, add the potato and chick peas, mash together, stir in remaining ingrediants and form 20 small balls.

    Arrange bhajis on a baking tray, bake gas 7 for approx 15 minutes and serve wiht the raita.

    I have tried these and they are gorgeous - even my husband was a fan. I'd definitely do them again!

    I'm thinking of making them and substituting the bombay spice mix and mixed herbs for the herb combination I found in one of SpaceAngel's old posts which is:

    1 tsp lemon juice
    2 tsp groun c umin
    1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
    1 tsp fresh green chilli, deseeded and chopped
    1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped

    I may or may not add some cumin seeds too as I love them. Will let you know how it turns out!
