      I used a combination of white and wheat flour for the gram but followed the rest as written. Very good. Served with Balti Fish Curry and Thai Coconut Rice.

      I'm a bit of a novice bhaji maker, but I was very pleased with these (and my chilli loving husband even more so!) I was a little short on fresh coriander so had to make up the difference with bottled, but otherwise, these were perfect! I thought DH might be sharing them with his friends, but no.. :D I was very pleased with this straightforward recipe and will undoubtedly be making them again, thanks, Brian!
