Onion Bhaji and Blue cheese dip (Super bowl Sunday super snack


Sitting pretty, wrapped up on a cold winter American Sunday evening, pretty much snowed in, preparing for the Super bowl to kick off,there”s nothing more versatile to do than make some crispy bhajis ,and a warm cup of masala chai. Onion bhaji always reminds me of rained down monsoon evenings, where we often enjoyed a evening in, with a spicy onion snack. The basic trick, my mum says is in the batter, made of chickpea flour and secret blend of spices. Here is my anglicized version of an age old heirloom tradition. To make enough for 4 Football fans All you need is: 100g Chick-Pea Flour preferably hand ground 1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp Baking soda A pinch Cornish sea salt 1/2 tsp freshly broiled and ground Cumin 1 Large Spanish Onion, halved and thinly sliced 1 Green Chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 25g finely chopped Fresh Coriander Groundnut oil for deep frying Rocket science: Whisk the Chickpea flour, chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin, and salt into a large mixing bowl.   Preheat the oil in a wok. Make a thick batter with the flour and make a pouring consistency by adding some water. Dip the sliced onion and chillies in the batter and coat properly. Fry the onions in batches being careful not to splash any oil on you. Drain well on kitchen paper and serve very hot with a rich blue cheese dip, or ketchup.
