Healthy(er) Onion Bhajis

    It is so easy and because the bhajis are oven-baked they are much healthier than the deep fried variety. Everyone who tries them loves them and leaves with a copy of the recipe.


    1. 1. Drizzle olive oil in to a pan and add onions. Cook until they go soft and translucent.

    2. 2. Add chilli powder from first list and mix well. Add remainder of first list and mix well. Turn off heat.

    3. 3. In a large bowl place gram flour and add second list and mix well.

    4. 4. Add onions and combine with the flour mix. In a smaller bowl place the tomato puree and water and mix. Add the tomato mixture to the onions. The mixture should be wet and easy to stir but not too easy. Add more gram flour to stiffen or water to slacken as desired.

    5. 4. Oil a baking sheet. Place a 2 tablespoon amount on the sheet and press flat with the back of the spoon. Make as many of these patties as the mixture allows.

    6. 5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180ºC for 10 minutes. Drizzle olive oil over top of bhajis and bake for a further 10-15 minutes.

    7. 6. Allow to cool and then try to eat just one!

      These were really tasty. The kids said "these taste like real onion bhajis!"The mixture made 8 large onion bhajis so I froze half and they reheated well.

      Seems an awful lot of onions for just 4 servings, is this correct?

      1. 1. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the onions, the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, chilli powder and salt. Stir together, then make a well in the centre.
      2. 2. Add 4 tablespoons of water to the well, then mix with a fork until the mixture forms a thick, stiff batter. If it appears runny, add extra flour. Ideally then leave in fridge for 30 mins.
      3. 3. Heat enough oil for deep frying in a heavy-based saucepan over a high heat or in a deep-fat fryer to 190°C/375°F, or until a small drop of batter sizzles fiercely in the oil.
      4. 4. Drop 1 tablespoon of the batter into the oil and fry for about 1 minute or until it turns golden brown.
      5. 5. Remove the fritter from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Taste the fritter and adjust the seasoning of the batter, adding more salt or chilli powder if necessary.
      6. 6. Fry the remaining fritters, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, if necessary. Remove any pieces of fried batter from the oil and return the oil to the correct temperature before adding each new batch.
      7. 7. Serve hot garnished with a little freash Coriander.

        Your very welcome. They're not all my own recipes some are from Grandma. Having extensively travelled and coming from a large family I'll never be short of a recipe, so if someone is not able to find one maybe I can tap it to my resources for them. Enjoy!

        This is a classic Indian starter dish, probably on of the most popular of all the Indian starter recipes


        1. Sift the flour, chilli, turmeric, cumin, baking powder, salt & pepper into a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped coriander, onions and chillis and mix well.

        2. Preheat the deep fat fryer to 170-180ºC / 350ºF.

        3. Gradually add enough water to the flour mixture to form a thick batter mixing very well so the onions are well coated.

        4. Very carefully drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil and fry until golden.

        5. Keep warm whilst you cook the remaining bhajis.

        6. Drain well onto kitchen paper and serve very hot.
