Genuine bhajis are made with gram flour, from chick peas. I've decided to go for a bit of a cheats version by using regular white flour and getting the colour from tumeric.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the flour, tumeric, chilli, sage and salt in a bowl. Add enough water - about 5 Tbsp - to form a very thick batter. Stir in the onion.
  2. Heat 5cm of oil in the wok and carefully drop the mixture into it using 2 tbsp - 1 to scoop up the batter and the other to ease it into the oil. Cook for 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper and serve warm.
