Step 1

Make the batter, mix all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl with water to create a batter with a consistency similar to heavy cream (double creamy in the UK).

Step 2

Slice the onions into thin slices and separate them just a little.

Step 3

Add the onions to the batter.

Step 4

Stir the onions with the batter so that it coats the onion slices well.

Step 5

Heat canola or vegetable/corn oil to 355°F (180C°), then using 2 spoons of your hands start dropping clusters of onions in the batter (about 3-4 at a time), and fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

Step 6

Using a spider or slotted spoon, remove the bhajis from the oil, and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Enjoy hot on their own, or serve with a yogurt mint raita.
