Our Ridiculously Good Onion Bhaji Recipe

Quick & Easy Onion Bhajis

This is a ridiculously good onion bhaji recipe that’s popular when we have a curry night at home. We also like these as a starter with other dishes such as our tasty Garlic Lemon Chicken. For an Indian night, we often make these along with meat and also veg samosa, usually a couple of different curries.

Serve with mint & garlic raita or cucumber raita.

coriander powder
chilli powder
cinnamon powder
2 finely chopped green chillies
some fresh coriander
salt to taste
6 tbsp gram flour


Add all the ingredients apart from the flour and water to a bowl and mix well for 5 minutes using your hands. Now add the flour and mix again with your hands.

Next, add enough water to make a sticky mixture, this will only take 1-2 tbsp of water. If you do add too much water just add a little more flour.

Now leave to rest for about an hour, at this time the dough should be drier and more solid.

Heat oil to high temperature. Then test the oil with a little mixture if sizzles and floats to the top it is ready for cooking. Next start forming your bhaji s and add to the oil turn when crispy on one side. If oil gets too hot reduce the heat.

When cooked it should appear crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

Drain on kitchen roll then serve.
