Onion Bhajis (gluten free)

These are so expensive from Indian restaurants and takeaways. I never understood why cause in fairness it’s an onion in a few spices and some gram flour and cost so little to make. You will easily make them at home yourself for less than €1. They are really quick to make too which is great.

Gram flour is made from chickpeas and gluten free. You will find it on Tescos or most Asian stores Try get it in Asian stores as it is a lot cheaper.

IF IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU THAT THEY ARE GLUTEN FREE THEN PLEASE CHECK THE SPICES YOU USE.

Instructions

1
Getting Ready.. You will need - 1 Deep Fat fryer or deep non stick pan, 1 bowl, 1 wooden spoon, 1 thongs and 1 plate with kitchen town on top.
2
If using a deep fryer, preheat it to 180c
3
Top and Tail the onions then remove the little bit from the centre. Slice them as thinly as possible. This will ensure you get a nice crisp Bhaji.
4
Place the rest of the ingredients in the bowl and mix well then add the onions and mix really well so the batter coats them completely. Add a little more water if needed.
5
Using your hands take a small handful and shape it into a ball around the size of a golf ball.
6
If using the deep fat fryer then drop the basket into the oil before you put the Bhaji in. This helps them stop sticking to the basket.
7
Cook for about 3 minutes turning halfway through.
8
If using the frying pan, heat 4 tbsp of vegetable oil in the pan then place the bhaji in and press down so it flattens a bit. Cook on a medium heat for 2 minutes on one side and 1 on the other until nice and crispy.
9
Place on the plate with the kitchen roll to drain excess oil and serve.
10
You can serve these with a lovely yogurt dip or mango chutney. To make a simple dip add 10 - 15 mint leaves to 6 tbsp natural yogurt and 2 tbsp of water. Mix really well till free from lumps then serve as a di with your lovely bhajis.
