It’s officially autumn, Easter is on the horizon and Human Rights Day is March 21, so what we need this month is something a little spicy, vaguely egg-shaped and good for fostering a bit of human kindness! Mushroom and Onion Bhajis http://bit.ly/2F5PTmB will definitely do the trick. Best enjoyed with friends… old and new. #autumn #Easter #humanrightsday #fingerfood #familyandfriends #smilesallround
Mushroom and Onion Bhajis
180ml cold water
120g chickpea or cake flour
2ml bicarbonate of soda
5ml curry powder
5ml cumin seeds
1 onion, sliced and quartered
200g button mushrooms, sliced
oil for frying
1 Place the water and egg into a jug and whisk together. Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda, curry powder, cumin seeds and salt and whisk until smooth.
2 Add the onion and mushrooms and stir to coat.
3 Heat some oil in pot or deep fat fryer. Once hot, drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the oil and fry for 30-45 seconds per side, or until the bhajis are golden-brown and crispy.
4 Use a slotted spoon to remove the bhajis and drain on kitchen paper. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Serve hot, with lime wedges, mango chutney and fresh coriander leaves.
