  • Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into the basket and flatten. Repeat as many times as your basket allows without the bhajis touching.

  • Cook in the preheated air fryer for 6 minutes. Mist the tops of each bhaji with cooking spray. Flip and cook 6 additional minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

Flavour was great, however I over worked the mixture and it became doughy, ending up with more of a pancake mix. Suggest trying mixing the ingredients lightly with hands (I used a spoon). This also given the water in most onions the extra water is unnecessary. Read More

Not good - the onions were tough, there was no”batter” and the yogurt dipping sauce was weak. I will not try this recipe again. I’m still hunting for something to cook in my air fryer that I like. Read More
