    We had onion bhajis with dinner last night and they were awesome. As a not-very-skilled cook I found it a doddle to make them too!

  2. User-ID-2465

    They are so simple to make and all the family love them, I have tried several alternatives, but these rate the best by far.

  3. User-ID-2674

    Have tried the curry kits and have been amazed at the results.
    Now…… Onion Bhaji.
    Surely these were not mine !!!
    How could I cook these tasty, authentic morsels.
    Fantastic result.
    Eat as a tasty snack or with your curry.

    The first time I tried this, I confess I was a bit sceptical. Surely it would not be possible for "authentic" onion bhajis to be made by the simple expedient of this mix, some onions and a few minutes?
    After consuming all of the bhajis and a large side of humble pie, I realised I was wrong – if this isn’t what authentic tastes like, then authentic is missing out.

    Honestly, this kit is so incredibly simple and good tasting that I can’t praise this enough – I try to keep at least one, if not two bags of the mix in the cupboard at all times!

  5. User-ID-3069
