A bhaji, sometimes called ‘bhajia’, is an Indian snack. It’s a vegetable fritter. For example, you could have cauliflower bhajis, aubergine bhajis or, the most common in British Indian cuisine, onion bhajis.

The word ‘bhaji’ is Hindi for ‘vegetable’.

It’s easy to make by slicing the vegetables and coating them in a batter of gram flour and spices, then deep frying.

Bhajis are usually served with a dip as part of an Indian meal or a starter.
