260g gram flour
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 ½ tsp ground coriander
¼ tsp chilli powder
½ garlic clove, finely grated
Salt & black pepper
4 onions, roughly chopped
300ml warm water
Vegetable oil, to fry
1 cucumber, coarsely grated and the water wrung out of it using a tea towel
Fill a wok/pan a third of the way full and set over a medium heat.
Combine all the ingredients for the bhajis bar the onions in a large bowl.
Add the onions to the batter mix and stir. Once the oil is hot, take tablespoonfuls of bhaji mixture and place them in the hot oil.
Fry for 2 minutes, turn over, and then fry for another 3 minutes. You want them to be golden brown.
Remove the bhajis using a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with kitchen towel to absorb any excess grease.
Make the raita by combining the yogurt with the cucumber and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper.Print
