I found this recipe on the Internet and think there are a few similar examples but loved it and thought I would share it with you. I tinkered a little bit with ingredient quantities and as I have tried it a few times now, I am fairly happy with the final version.
These bhajis are supposedly healthier as they are oven baked. I suppose they are a bit healthier than deep fried bhajis but there is still quite a bit of oil used which is important for the authentic taste. Anyway, I didn't cook them in an attempt to be healthy but rather a way of making our home cooked curries a little more interesting. It certainly worked as they are delicious.
To make 4 bhajis:
3 medium onions (half chopped against the grain and half the other way)
1.5 tablespoons of Gram Flour
1 tablespoon tomato puree
Butter (to grease the dish)
What to do:
First you need to make the onion mixture.
Bake for 25 minutes in a preheated oven (160 degrees c), brush with a little olive oil and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes or until golden brown. Trust me - you will never buy bhajis again.
