Onion Bhaji - Nutritional Info

This Onion Bhaji Recipe is really tasty and what's more is suitable for those following a gluten free diet! It is a perfect side dish for our Indian Banquet Menu from CreativelyPaleo.com

Obviously the main ingredient of onion bhajis is onions which are a good source of vitamin B6 as well as potassium and manganese, and a very good source of vitamin C.

They also contain eggs which provide lots of riboflavin, vitamin B12, phosphorus and selenium - and protein of course!

Turmeric gives these bhajis their vibrant colour but also adds vitamins C and B6, magnesium, potassium, iron, manganese and curcumin which is reputedly one of the most powerful anti cancer agents currently known! 


 Ingredients - makes 20

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp onion seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour

Instructions

  1. In a bowl beat the eggs.
  2. Stir in the onions,
  3. Add the spices and flours.
  4. Stir thoroughly making sure there are no lumps of flour.
  5. Drop 1 heaped tsp of mixture into a deep fat frier and cook until golden brown.

We used an actifry and cooked the bhajis for 5 minutes without the paddle, turned them over and cooked for a further 3 minutes.

We tried baking them in the oven in mini cupcake moulds at 200C /400F/gas mark 6 for 10 minutes, they worked ok, but the onions were rather crunchy, and the flavour was definitely not as good as when they were fried.
