  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, soften the onion and garlic in the butter until translucent. Season with salt. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl, combine the chickpea flour, spices and salt. Season with pepper. Add the water while stirring with a spatula. Add the onion mixture, chicken and cilantro. Mix well. The mixture will be very thick.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron on high. Using a pastry brush, generously coat the cavities of the waffle iron with melted butter.
  4. Pour about ⅓ cup (75 ml) of the bhaji batter into each cavity. Close the device. Cook for 5 minutes or until the waffles are golden. Cover and keep warm on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. Serve the bhaji waffles with plain yogurt mixed with Sriracha, sprinkled with coriander, if desired.


The chickpea flour can be replaced with ¾ cup (115 g) unbleached all-purpose flour.

The bhaji waffles can be cut into 4 pieces and served as canapés.
