Onion Bhajis Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes
2 white onions, sliced or spiralized using the flat noodle blade
3/4 cup | 105 grams gram flour/chickpea flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 green chili, , deseeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon lemon juice
5-6 tablespoons water
coconut oil for frying
1Place the flour, baking powder, salt, cumin, turmeric, chili, cilantro, and lemon juice in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add in the water.
2Once you've got a thick batter, add the onion slices and stir to coat with the batter. I find this step is easiest if you just mix with your hands.
3Heat a large wok on the stove top on a medium heat and melt enough coconut oil so that you've got about a half inch layer of oil.
4Carefully drop tablespoons of the batter into the hot oil cooking about 3-4 bhajis at a time. Fry for about a minute on each side and then flip the bhajis to get the other side until golden. Remove each bhaji with a slotted spoon and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain the excess oil. Continue until all of your batter is gone.
5Serve these hot on their own or with a cucumber mint raita and enjoy!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
