Healthy Onion Bhaji – Slimming Style
I’ve been so meaning to have a go at my own Slimming and Healthy Onion Bhaji recipe for a while
Last night I made my my Easy Peasy Slimming Chicken Curry, a family fave and so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try something new – a new recipe 🙂
I’d seen some recipes knocking about on the internet but I didn’t fancy their spice blend – so here’s mine
So off I went and sometimes – not very often, you get it right first time 🙂 and sometimes you also get a lovely shot!
Well I’m pleased to say that was last night (I ate at least 4 of the 12 – eeeek)
Look how fresh and colourful they are – divine
What is an Onion Bahji?
Well first of all I needed to figure out how to spell it 🙂 there are lots of different spelling.
In the end I resorted to Wikipedia
The Ingredients for your Slimming – Healthy Onion Bhaji
So according to the slimming plan all the ingredients are free – yay!
It’s the gram flour that is missed out
So mine are NOT exactly how you know them from the Indian restaurant
They are ‘fresher & lighter’ somehow. They are also much more fragile
However trust me they taste amazing!
I used 2 different coloured Onions and sweet potato – yum
Tip on how to make your healthy Onion Bhajis
Simply finely slice your onions and grate your sweet potato and follow the instructions at the bottom of the post
To bake your healthy Onion Bajhis
I used a deep Yorkshire pudding Tin / Muffin tin – and it was perfect
I did make some on a baking sheet but the shape wasn’t as good – but it was ok (just make sure you spray your baking paper well with Fry Light)

What to serve with your healthy Onion Bahjis
Well any of my lovely Slimming style curries
Or I can eat them on their own as a savoury snack
They are also lovely dipped in a yoghurt and mint dip
Chicken Curry for your Indian Fakeaway night
And if you like this dish I have many other Healthy Dinners, both mid week and weekend.
One of my faves is my Easy Chicken Biryani, so easy and so tasty
