onion bhaji is a spicy Indian snack of which the main ingredient
is fried onions. In the UK the onion bhaji has become popular
to eat as a snack or as a starter in Indian restaurants. The
basic recipe consists of onions being chopped and then made
into a sort of batter with chickpea or gram flour, spices,
and sometimes with herbs, then fried until golden. They have
a mild taste and are not hot.
