Air Fryer Onion Bhaji

My air fryer onion bhaji recipe is a thing of great beauty, it is simply an onion fritter made from a spiced batter and they taste fantastic.

I like to cook these in an air fryer as maintaining a clean deep fat fryer is a chore, but I have instructions for frying too.

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 16 MINUTES

total time: 26 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 100g (⅔ Cup) Onion
