My Onion Bhaji

November 18th 2008

onion bhaji

200 gr gram flour
100 gr plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
about a cup of yoghurt
1 spring onion
paprika powder
curry powder
pinch of salt
couple of turns of pepper
some water

I tried this recipe before. I thought it was a bit bland, but I did make my own twist to it. Like I don’t use coriander/cilantro because it’s the herb from hell. Also winged it a bit on the spices, because I don’t have em all.
Then yesterday I saw another recipe on Indian Food Made Easy. So now I tried my own version with some plain flour added and yoghurt. At the time when I made this, the recipe wasn’t yet published. I’ll try the one on the BBC site next time.
Mix the dry ingrediënts without the onion, add yoghurt and water, till you get a batter that is not too thin (wetter than bread dough, dryer than pancake batter). Add onions. For frying I used a small saucepan with about 5cm of oil. Heat till about 170/180C and fry spoonfuls of batter for about 3 minutes.
I like to eat it with some chili sauce.
