1 medium onion, halved and sliced
100g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
pinch of salt
vegetable oil, for deep frying
1. Mix the flour, spices and salt in a bowl. Gradually mix in enough water to make a quite thick, sticky batter. Add the onions and mix well.
2. Heat the oil to 180C. To check if the oil is hot enough, drop in a little of the batter. It should start sizzling immediately, but not too much.
3. Form the batter into 6 balls. Deep fry for 2 minutes, turning halfway through. Drain on kitchen roll and serve.
