I love curries of all types and I am always on the look out for healthy recipes. I recently bought a book by Slimming World called 'Curry Feast' and it is full of delicious, healthy recipes (if you exclude the artificial sweetener they use in the recipes!).

I was delighted to find a recipe for onion bhajis, which doesn't involve deep frying. Here is it - why not give it a go?

200g/7oz onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
50g/2oz gram flour
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
1 tsp deseeded and chopped green chilli
1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves
1/4 tsp baking powder
Fry Light (or other oil spray)
Pinch of paprika to serve

1. Place the onions, gram flour, lemon juice, cumin, coriander seeds, green chilli, chopped coriander and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Season wiht salt and add a few tablespoons of water to form a thick batter that coats the onion. Leave to rest for 15 minutes and then, using your fingers, mix again to combine thoroughly.

2. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C/ gas 7. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and using your fingers or a dessert spoon, drop small mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet to give you 12 bhajis.

3. Spray with Fry Light (or other oil spray) and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and serve immediately sprinkled wih the paprika.
