Cook time 20 minutes
1 large onion, approximately 300g
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp garlic salt
½ tsp ground coriander
½ tsp ground cumin
10g fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 small green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
100g gram flour
1tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp cold water
½ cucumber, peeled and grated
150g Greek yogurt
10g fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
- Peel and half the onion then cut into 3mm slices and pop into a bowl with a tsp of salt. Leave to stand for 20-30 minutes then rinse off the salt and squeeze out any excess liquid.
- Pop the remaining dry bhajis ingredients into a bowl and mix well to coat the onion in the flour and spices. Add the oil and water and mix well until the ingredients come together.
- Shape into 8 bhajis, squeezing the mixture gently to form a ball then place on two air flow racks lined with parchment paper. Spray the bhajis with oil.
- Set the air fryer temperature to 185C. Cook the bhajis on the top and middle shelves for 18-20 minutes until crisp and golden, rotating the racks halfway through for even cooking.
- Meanwhile to prepare the raita, squeeze the grated cucumber in a clean tea towel to get rid of any excess liquid and pop into a bowl with the yogurt and mint. Stir to combine and season to taste.
- Serve two Bhajis per portion on a warm plate with a drizzle of mint raita.
If you don’t have any fresh mint, try using a tsp of mint sauce from a jar
