Nutrition: per serving



  • 2 Onions Thinly sliced
  • 150 g Chickpea Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Coriander Chopped
  • Water As needed
  • Oil For frying


  • In a mixing bowl, combine chickpea flour, baking powder, cumin seeds, red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, and salt.
  • Add the thinly sliced onions to the dry mixture. Mix thoroughly to ensure the onions are evenly coated with the flour and spices.
  • Gradually incorporate water into the mixture while stirring. The batter should possess a thickness sufficient to coat the back of a spoon. Begin with approximately 1/2 cup of water and adjust as necessary.
  • Add the chopped coriander leaves into the batter and mix once more.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan for frying, aiming for a temperature of around 170°C (340°F).
  • Using a spoon or your hands, deposit small portions of the batter into the hot oil, taking care not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry the bhajis for approximately 3-4 minutes or until they acquire a golden brown and crispy texture. Remember to flip them halfway through for even frying.
  • Once the bhajis are cooked to perfection, retrieve them from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  • Serve the onion bhajis while hot, accompanied by your preferred dipping sauce, such as mint chutney or tamarind sauce.
