The hardest bit in this recipe is the eye-watering process of slicing the onions. These bhajis are so simple to prepare and may help to use up any courgettes still lurking out there.

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan, then spoon out the mixture carefully into small rounds, cooking 4 at a time. 
  3. As the bhajis crisp, transfer to a baking tray and keep warm. 
  4. Serve with lemon wedges, and cucumber and mint raita (mix 1 tbsp chopped mint leaves, 2 tbsp finely sliced cucumber, and 150g natural yoghurt).
