Baked Onion Bhajis

By Esther Boateng

This recipe is worth the effort if you love Indian food. Onion bhajis are essentially onion fritters, which are usually deep fried. If you have onions, chickpeas, gluten free flour, and some seasoning, you can pull off this recipe in just under an hour. There’s no need to dig out the deep fat fryer, as these bhajis are oven baked. With that said, you won’t get any crispy coating, but you will get a soft, fluffy, and delicately spiced side dish that will brighten your dinner plate.

Baking powder and perhaps some additional salt helps turn your bhajis into tasty fluffy balls of deliciousness. When you slice the onions, they’ll seem like too much, but when you coat them in batter, and bake them in the oven, you’ll realize you have a good ratio of vegetables and batter. There’s no need to pre-cook the onions, as they’ll soften and cook throughout when baked. Enjoy your bhajis with your favorite creamy dip, or eat it as part of your main meal alongside a plate of Kitchari rice.
