Much healthier than the bhajis you'll get from your local take-away, and cheaper too! Serves 2.


  • 3 oz (85g) gram flour
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • Pinch of methi
  • Pinch of cumin seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • Water to form the batter
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • Vegetable oil for shallow frying


  1. In a bowl mix the gram flour, spices and salt with the water to form a smooth, pouring batter. 
  2. Add the onion to the batter and leave to stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Over a high heat drop half the mixture into a lightly oiled pan forming a pancake. Cook on both sides until brown and no liquid surfaces when pressed with a spatula. 
  4. Repeat with the remaining half of the batter.
