The method

1

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

2

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

3

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).

4

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.

5

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.

6

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