Onion Bhajis - Syn Free


Indian is my favourite cuisine, and onion bhajis are quite the drool-fest aren't they? So when I sampled a syn free onion bhaji at class recently I was blown away. I decided that these were going to accompany my slimming world curries every time... Now, these take a bit of prep so I've somewhat given up on that dream, but they are definitely worth rustling up as a party food or when having a "fakeaway" night in.
