    Onion Bhaji’s


    Ingredients:

    200g/7oz onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
    50g/2oz Gram Flour
    1 tsp lemon juice
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
    1 tsp deseeded and chopped fresh green chilli
    1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves
    ¼ tsp baking powder
    Salt
    Fry light

    To serve:

    Pinch of paprika

    Instructions:

    • Place the onions, gram flour, lemon juice, cumin, coriander seeds, green chilli, chopped coriander and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and add a few tablespoons of water to form a thick batter that coats the onion. Leave to rest for 15 minutes and then, using your fingers, mix again to combine thoroughly.
    • Preheat the oven to 220c/Gas 7. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and using your fingers or a dessertspoon, drop small mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet to give you 12 bhaji’s.
    • Spray with fry light and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and serve immediately sprinkled with the paprika.

    Those look so nice! Yummmo! I wonder if you need to microwave or soften the onion a little before baking or is it enough baking time so that the onion isn't still crunchy?

    the onion is fine without it being precooked - i have to say i read the recipe several times then wondered if i missed the bit where to pre-cook onion lol - so i just carried on and this was the result (i added a little tumeric for colour and some fennel seeds as i love the hint of aniseed)
    beware they are a little bit moorish lol

    These are the same recipe as on Domestic Sluttery I think, we've just had them and they were BEAUTIFUL. Mmm. My only adjustment is adding the paprika before cooking rather than after
