RECIPE: BHAJI, INDIAN-STYLE ONION RINGS
Ingredients For 2 Servings
1. HEAT the oil in a wok or 4-quart pot over medium heat, to 350°F.
2. MIX the chickpea flour, cumin, cayenne, turmeric and salt in a medium bowl. Add the water and stir until batter is formed. It should be just thick enough to coat an onion ring without sliding off too quickly. Adjust with more water if necessary.
3. DIP the onion rings into batter and coat each thoroughly. Deep-fry the rings, in 3 or 4 batches, in the oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
4. SERVE with spicy ketchup.
