How to make Onion Bhaji
Sift the flour, chilli, turmeric, cumin, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped coriander, onions and chillis and mix well.
Preheat the deep fat fryer to 180ºC / 350ºF.
Gradually add enough water to the flour mixture to form a thick batter mixing very well so the onions are well coated.
Very carefully drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil and fry until keep warm whilst you cook the remaining bhajis.
Drain well on kitchen paper and serve very hot.
