A really simple dish that tastes just as good as the ones from an indian takeaway. It is best to serve with sauce or garnish of some description. We used a cucumber raita. The ingredients we used are all suitable for vegan.


3 medium onions

150g gram flour 

1 teaspoon mild curry powder 

1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder

Vegetable Oil


Peel and thinly slice onions and soak them in cold water for 5 mins.

Next in a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and add enough water to make a smooth thick batter. Drain the onions and add to the batter. If it looks too thin then just add a little more gram flour. 

Heat vegetable oil in a pan enough to deep fry. Test it is hot enough by putting a little of the mix in. It should sizzle and brown in 2 minutes. When hot enough use a tablespoon to shape and drop the bhajis into the oil, cooking 2 minutes each side. Don’t overload the pan as it is better to cook in 2 batches. 

Drain on kitchen paper and serve.
