Tuck into these tasty onion bhajis for tiny Syns!


  • 200g onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 60g gram flour
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1 tsp deseeded and chopped green chilli
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • ¼ tsp baking powder (may contain gluten)
  • Salt
  • Low calorie cooking spray

To serve

  • A pinch of paprika


  1. Place the onions, gram flour, lemon juice, cumin, coriander seeds, green chilli, chopped coriander and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and add a few tablespoons of water to form a thick batter that coats the onion. Leave to rest for 15 minutes and then, using your fingers, mix again to combine thoroughly.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas 7. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and, using your fingers or a dessert spoon, drop small mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet to give you 12 bhajis.
  3. Spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and serve immediately sprinkled with the paprika.
  4. If you're enjoying an Extra East SP day, enjoy with at least half a plate of Speed food vegetables.

Tip: These classic bhajis are delicious served hot with Khatta-meetta tamatar chutney.
