Cuisine Indian


  • 2 onions
  • 100 g gram flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking flour
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 cloves crushed fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 100 ml water


  • Cut the onion in half through the stalk. Put the flat side down on the chopping board, starting at one end cut thin slices until you reach the other end.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl.
  • Add the salt, turmeric, chilli powder, garlic and ginger and mix.
  • Add the water; you need a thick batter (double cream consistency).
  • Stir in the onion.
  • Heat the oil; a drop of batter should sizzle as soon as it hits the oil.
  • Place tablespoon sized amounts into the oil; be careful not to overload.
  • Leave to cool on a baking tray.
