If there's one accompaniment to British Indian Restaurant Curries that's top of the popularity stakes, it has to be the onion bhaji - yet many chefs, even in restaurants, make poor examples of these classic Indian savouries. Pakoras are simply fried, batter-coated vegetables, such as florets of cauliflower or broccoli, or slices of aubergine, parsnip or potato, cooked in the same batter as a bhaji and served sprinkled with a little salt.
Anglo Indian Chef Onion Bhaji/Pakora Mix has been formulated to enable anyone to quickly and easily make classically tasty, crisp and light bhajis that melt in the mouth and are well cooked all the way through.
