    I just made the syn free Chicken Jalfrezi and 1 syn Onion Bhaji's from the curry feast book and I have to say they were both amazing!! Although I wouldn't add the 100ml water it tells you to as it made it quite sloppy. Would recommend this to anyone though. Also with the Bhaji's I doubled up the size so it only made 6 instead of 12 making them 2 syns each

    The bhajis are fab :D even hubby loves them, however I could definitely eat more than 1 syn worth. Definitely agree about the water though I think there is enough water in the onion.

    Pesty - I haven't got my book with me but I can email it to you tomorrow if you want unless someone else has it handy - the book though is out of print so you cannot get it from group, you have to buy it off Amazon

    enjoy it - I make at least one curry per week out of this book, because it is old though I do double check some of the syn values. I made the Maglorean Beef & tomato curry with tomato & mushroom pilau rice last week - it was one of the best curries I have tasted.

    1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves (although my chef at work assures me ground is just as good in bhaji's)
    1/4 tsp baking powder, salt to season.

    Put all ingredients into a large mixing bowl, season with salt add a few tablespoons of water to form a thick batter coating, mix and leave to rest for 15mins, then mix using fingers to combine thoroughly. Line a baking tray with parchment,spray with fry light, mixture makes 12 bhaji's. Cook for 20 mins on 220/gas 7.

    1 tsp ground coriander
    can chopped tomatoes (400g)
    large handful chopped coriander leaves
    salt and black pepper to season

    I made the Jalfrezi on Saturday - it is so nice but mine was dead hot - I think I put too much Chilli powder in!
