Ingredients
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
  • 50g kale, finely chopped
  • 80g gram flour (chickpea flour)
  • 2cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • 1tsp hot chilli powder
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • Raita, mango chutney and lemon wedges, to serve
Method
  • Mix all the ingredients for the bhajis together with 80ml water to make a thick batter.

  • Pour oil into a large saucepan to a depth of 6cm. Heat gently until a small drop of the batter dropped in the oil sizzles and browns in 30 secs.

  • Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil in batches of 3 or 4. Cook for 3-4 mins until crisp and golden. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper and keep warm in a low oven until all the mixture has been cooked.

  • Serve the bhajis hot with raita, mango chutney and lemon wedges.
