A deliciously healthy oven baked onion bhaji, using sweet potato and indian inspired spices to make a healthy and tasty batter
- 4 onions (peeled and thinly sliced)
- Low calorie cooking spray
- 2 small sweet potatoes (pricked and microwaved for 7 minutes)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 180c
- Fry the onions gently in low-calorie cooking spray for about 10 minutes, until soft and golden. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
- Scoop the flesh out of the cooked sweet potatoes into a bowl and mash with a fork.
- Add the egg, spices and salt to the sweet potato, using the fork to combine thoroughly to make a batter. Stir in the cooled fried onions until thoroughly coated.
- Line a baking tray with baking parchment and use your hands to shape bhajis out of the mixture (this should make about 12)
- Spray thoroughly with cooking spray and bake for 45 minutes until golden and crisp.
Note: Try making a quick yoghurt and mint dip to go with these. Simply mix 250g fat-free Greek yoghurt, a handful of finely chopped mint leaves, 1 crushed garlic clove, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and a pinch of salt in a small bowl.
