The method


Slice your onions. Add oil to a heavy bottomed pan and heat.


Add the onions and allow to soften for approximately 5 minutes. Once soft, remove from the heat and allow to cool.


In a bowl, mix together the flour, egg, and spices. Then add in 100ml of water and the onions. Mix until it forms a thick batter (add more water if consistency is too stiff).


Fill a pan with oil (approximately 5-6cm deep). To check if the oil is hot enough, add in a tiny bit of the mixture and it should rise to the top.


Once hot enough, slightly dampen your hands to form small patties of the mixture. Carefully lower into the oil, using a metal slotted spoon and cook for around 3-4 minutes, ensuring you turn them half way through.


Remove from the oil and allow to drain on kitchen roll, enjoy!
