So I decided to make my own up as I went along and to bake them instead and they worked too!! They are really easy to make as well.
Here's the recipe if you want to have a go yourself (good news for gluten free folks, they use chickpea flour!!)
1-2 tbsp olive oil (plus extra for baking)
1 nice large onion, finely sliced (you need about 2 cups of onion)
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) chickpea (gram) flour
2 tsp rice flour (I used brown rice flour)
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala or curry powder
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) water
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
Heat the oil over a medium heat and add the onions and a pinch of salt (don't go nuts or it'll overpower the flavour of the bhajis). Cook them for a good 10-15 minutes until they are cooked through and are starting to get golden, just don't burn them.
Transfer the onions to a bowl and dump the other ingredients in. Mix everything well.
Spray a cookie sheet with oil or line with greaseproof paper. Divide the mixure into 4 and spoon it onto the baking sheet. Flatten a little the spray the tops with a teeny bit of oil.
Bake for 10 minutes, then spray a little more oil over them and bake another 5-10 minutes until cooked and starting to get golden.
I served mine with curry and basmati rice. YUM YUM.
