Print Recipe


  • Large onion 1
  • Plain flour 85g
  • Sparkling water​ 150ml
  • Cumin 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander 1 teaspoon
  • Tumeric 1 teaspoon
  • Olive oil drizzle
  • Fresh coriander
  • Salt 2 pinches



Thinly slice the large onion by chopping it in half, peeling away the outer layer of skin and then guiding the knife across the onion to cut paper thin slices.


Next, mix the flour with the: cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt then stir.


Now add the water to the dry mixture and use a fork or whisk to combine these together. Once this is combined together to make a thin paste, introduce the onion to the mixture, completely coating it before allowing it to rest for 5 minutes to allow the onion to absorb some of the mixture.


Apply a drizzle of oil to the pan on a medium heat until it begins to smoke. Split the mixture and add it to the pan. Allow it to fry for 3 minutes before turning and cooking for another 3 minutes.


Remove the bhajis from heat and plate up. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander.
