Onion Bhajia

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bokenpop aka Madele

These tasty morsels remind me of the many snatched office breakfasts enjoyed with Riaz and Kapil. Hopefully this recipe will do justice to the wonderful memories I have of my two dear colleagues.

this didn't work well for us at all. i missed the besan in this and found the batter to be very bland. i search of a more authentic recipe i called home and asked my mom, she suggested i use some ground cumin or coriander seasonings to enhance the flavor, and to definitely use chana flour. sorry for the poor review, but this definitely does not yield the authentic bhajias i was hoping for.
