Onion Bhaji

September 13, 2010thecoffeebreak
This tasty Indian bhaji or simply onion fritters are a must as an accompaniment to curry or any other Indian meal. Can be served as a side dish or an appetizer but I love it as a snack – simply delicious!
Prep time : 15 min
Total time : 30 min
(Serves  4)
2 large onions, sliced or chopped
100 gram chickpea flour
1/2 cup water
Salt, pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 green chili, deseeded and finely chopped
Oil for frying
In bowl combine onion, cumin, ginger, flour, chili; slowly add water to make thick batter. Season with salt and pepper.
In a deep pan pour in oil, it should reach about 5 cm up the sides. Heat oil to 180⁰ C ; in batches, carefully spoon batter to the oil (about size of golf-ball) and deep fry for 3-5 min, turning occasionally.
Transfer to the paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve hot with Greek style yogurt or sour-cream.

    I love fried onion rings we get here in the States. These bhaji take it to an entirely new level with the wonderful spices. They look delicious!!!
