Its finally here!! Leela's kitchen Onion bhaji mix - WINNER of the U.K Quality Food Awards 2016 is made using the finest ingredients. This recipe has been in our family for 5 generations and I remember my mum making the bhaji's, and myself and my sister's used to enjoy enjoy eating the freshly made bhaji's after we got home from school. I decided to launch our bhajis mix after receiving very good feedback from my clients.
Onion Bhaji, is a favourite Indian snack, and was probably my first introduction to the joys of Indian food, usually served with a hot cup of chai. The word "bhaji" means fritter - in fact, they're just one small part of the wider pakora family, which encompasses all manner of fabulous veg/meat etc fried in chickpea batter, but in the Isle of Man/ U.K, the pungent onion variety rules supreme.
You are buying a product that has been tried and tested many time.
Very very very important: The temperature of the oil, too hot and your bhaji's will fry quickly on the outside and will be raw on the inside, too cold - they will be oily and too soft. Make sure your oil is on a medium heat and always do my mom's sizzle testing method - she used to drop a medium size drop of batter into the hot oil, and if it sizzles up to the top you are ready to go!
Hope you will all enjoy my onion bhaji's - a perfect family snack. If you've any queries, please feel free to contact me.
From my family to yours!! Enjoy :)
