Onion Fritters / Onion Bhaji – Vegan

Quick and easy vegan recipe of crispy Onion fritters also known as Onion Bhaji in Indian cuisine, mainly served as a snack or starter before a main course. Its also sometimes named as pakora (fritter) which are deep-fried in a batter of chickpea flour.

I make this quiet often when we want to munch on snacks and this is quick to prepare during weekends. Most of the recipes call for many ingredients for Onion Bhaji and I made it super-quick for minimal prep and time in the kitchen.

Preparation time : 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2


Vegetable oil for deep-frying

Onion – 1 medium, thinly sliced

Chickpea flour/ Gram flour / Besan – 1/2 cup / 70 g

Rice flour – 2 tbsp, for crispness

Water – 25 ml if required

Red chili powder – 1 tsp (optional)

Salt – 1/4 tsp



1. Peel and wash onion. Cut into thin slices.

2. Add chickpea flour or besan, rice flour, salt. Mix and coat together using your hands or spoon. It will turn sticky as onions release water while mixing. Do not add water yet until well mixed for half a minute.
