Onion Bhaji recipe / How to prepare Onion bhaji


One of the simplest and quick bhaji to prepare. Goes well with dosas and poories. This recipe I bet will take less than 8 minutes for you to make and would require just few ingredients. I make this recipe when I make Maland tuppa set dosa in which I use onion bhaji as a accompaniment with coconut chutney topped with hot ghee. I shall blog very soon on that recipe of malnad tuppa set which is popular in Hassan, Karnataka.
