Onion bhaji
« on: September 14, 2019, 07:35 PM »
We had two guests stay at the hotel yesterday who very kindly left a copy of their book All Mum's Stuff!, dedicated to the memory of their late son Mark.  The author is a Kenyan Asian, Champa, and among her recipes she includes one for onion bhaji.  I don't want to infringe her copyright, so I won't replicate it here, but what intrigued me was that the ingredients included 8oz boiled rice  (as well as banana !).  Has anyone previously encountered a recipe for onion bhaji that includes rice ?

No, but I can imagine it acting as a binder, perhaps?

I little like adding grated potato to

Well, I will be giving her recipe a go, but I am afraid that for me the bananas are a definite no-no.  I loathe them in any form, especially when they sneak into an fruit smoothie ...

I'm pretty sure you don't have to make this one to know that it's not an onion bhaji. At least not in BIR terms.

I balk at the use of potato, so rice, masoor dal, bananas and any other contaminants really don't sit well with me.

I would definitely eat onion bhajis with banana in it. I love bananas and I love banana fritters.

No you wouldn't because by definition it would no longer be an onion bhaji!   :P
