Easy Onion Bhaji Recipe

Updated on October 16, 2013

As either a starter or side order to any Indian dish, the onion Bhaji may be seen as essential when making your own curry. However, instead of making our own, all too often people will go out and buy shop bought onion bhaji's as they think that they would not be able to make one of a similar standard.

I am here today to show that onion bhaji's are in fact one of the cheapest and easiest Indian side dishes to make. I myself am by no means a master chef however, I can make these with no problems. They only take half an hour to make and cook as well...


  • 3 Medium Sized Onions
  • 2 Free Range Eggs
  • 120g Flour (Plain)
  • 1-2 tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Coriander
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Curry Powder, (Optional)

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 8- 10 Bhaji's


  1. Crack eggs into your mixing bowl and beat.
  2. Peel and chop the onions into rings. Then chop the rings into quarters.
  3. Add your onion to the beaten eggs.
  4. Slowly mix in the flour, cumin, coriander, olive oil. If you are going to add the curry powder too then this would be the stage to add it. Your mixture should now be thick and not too runny. If it is then add a dash more flour. Do not worry however that the onions do not bond together. They will do so when you fry.
  5. Finally, spoon the mixture (or use your hands) into a large frying pan with a lot of really hot oil. Leave on one side for a couple of minutes and then keep turning periodically until they reach a golden brown colour. This normally takes me around 10minutes to achieve, however, do not be worried if it takes longer.

The curry powder in this recipe is an optional extra that I add in as I like my Bhaji's to have a little kick to them. Do not feel you have to add it in though...
