Onion Bhaji (Indian Onion Fritters)

15 MIN
20 MIN



  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, turmeric, cumin, coriander, parsley and water. Season with salt and pepper. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to blend. Preheat the fryer to high heat.
  2. Preheat the oven to 75 °C (170 °F).
  3. With two teaspoons, place 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of batter and fry in the hot oil, a few at a time, for 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towel and keep warm in the oven. Fry the remaining fritters. Serve warm as a starter.


You can find chickpea flour in health food stores and some supermarkets.


  1. We had a lot of yellow squash and I used that, plus some scallions, in place of the onions. It came out quite delicious.

  2. I agree. Second time I make these. Once in a frypan in less oil, today in a deep fryer. Either way, 5 stars!

  3. Wonderfully easy, excellent taste. What could be better! Merci!
