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

A bhaji, bhajji, bhajiya or bajji is a spicy snack or entree dish similar to a fritter, originating from the Indian subcontinent, with several variants. Wikipedia
 
See loads of spellings!! 

 

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)
