I experimented to find the best onion bhajia recipe and this combination is just delicious! I've made it so many times as it's so easy and my family just loves them! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
Onion Bhajia Recipe Prep Time: 20 minutes (Approx)
Makes 15-20 Onions Bhajias
1 Large Onion (about 220g), Sliced Fairly Thin
1/2 Cup (60g) Chickpea Flour
2 TBSP Coarse Semolina
2 tsp Rice Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Coriander-Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp Red Chilis Powder
Pinch of Garam Masala (optional)
2/3 Cup (150ml) Cold Tap Water
2 TBPS Chopped Coriander
1-2 tsp Hot Oil From Frying
Oil for Deep Frying
Slice the onion into fairly thin slices. If the length is too long, cut it in half.
Make the batter by mixing all the ingredients in a large bowl. Let it sit for a minute.
Meanwhile, heat up the oil in a pot and get a tray ready lined with newspaper and paper towels.
Then add the sliced onions to the batter. Make sure the consistency is as you like it. I like my batter thin so it just coats my onions.
Add 1-2 tsp hot oil to the batter & onion mix and mix with a spoon.
Before frying, make sure the oil is quite hot, otherwise the onion bhajias may become greasy.
Place small amounts (about 1 TBSP) of the onion mix into the hot oil and fry until nice and crisp. Make sure you clump the onions together when dropping them into the oil.
Remove to a tray lined with paper towels.
Enjoy hot with fresh tomato chutney.
Note: Save the oil in a container after sieving it. You'll want to make these again and can use this same oil for them!
