  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 120ml + 2 tbsp gram flour
  • 120ml cold water
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp red chili powder
  • ½ tsp coriander powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • salt, to taste
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 250ml yoghurt
  • 1 cucumber, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp mint, crushed

STEP 1

Start by peeling the onions and slicing them thinly. Place the sliced onions in cold water. Let the onion sit for about 5 to 10 minutes.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, add flour, baking powder, turmeric, coriander powder, red chilli powder, chopped green chilli, and salt. Mix well.

STEP 3

Pour cold water and mix well until you get a smooth yet thick batter. You can add more water if the batter is too thick. Set it aside.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, prepare the dip by adding yoghurt to a bowl. Add grated cucumber, minced garlic, and crushed mint. Mix well and refrigerate.

STEP 5

Drain the onions. And add them to the gram flour batter. Mix well.

STEP 6

In a frying pan, heat oil. Once the oil is hot, scoop the batter using a tablespoon and add it to the hot oil. You can use your hands to drop the onion bhaji as well.

STEP 7

Cook the onion bhaji for about 3 to 5 minutes or until they get a nice golden colour. Take them out of the oil and place them on a kitchen towel to get rid of extra oil. Note: You can also cook these in an air fryer oven or a conventional oven.

STEP 8

Serve with mint and yoghurt dip. Enjoy.
