Great for picnics or school lunches, these tasty snacks are flavoured with garlic, chilli and lots of fresh dhania.
To make onion and chole bhajis, gently cook 1 large sliced onion in 1 tbsp oil for 10 minutes or until very soft. Sift 85 g besan into a bowl with 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp turmeric, ½ tsp mild chilli powder and ½ tsp salt. Stir in ½ tsp cumin seeds and make a well in the centre. Add 4 tbsp plain dahi, 3 tbsp cold water and 1 tsp lemon juice, and mix to a thick, smooth batter. Stir in the onion and 400 g kabuli chane, soaked overnight, boiled and lightly mashed. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan, drop in spoonfuls of the batter and flatten them slightly with the back of the spoon. Cook over a moderate heat for 2–3 minutes on each side.
Chickpeas have a very low Glycaemic Index although mashing them increases the index. This dish is nonetheless a good low-calorie, low-fat choice for those with diabetes. * Eating onions regularly can have several beneficial effects, particularly in helping to reduce blood cholesterol levels and to lessen the risk of blood clots forming.
