  1. Half fill a large pan with vegetable oil and heat to 175°C.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the gram flour, all the spices and the chopped coriander. Season to taste. Pour in 150ml (1/4pt) cold water, whisking as you go, until you have a thick, gloopy paste.
  3. Toss the sliced onions in the batter, and then use tongs to carefully lower small blobs of the onion mixture into the oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes, turning them in the oil every so often, until they are golden and crisp.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to fish them from the oil. Drain the bhajis well on kitchen paper, and serve alongside a curry or with a selection of dips and chutneys.
