Low carb onion bhaji

Traditionally these are made with gram flour, but to keep the carb content down I've used a different batter mix. Super easy to make and absolutely delicious. Serve as a starter for 4 or a main for 2.
Servings 4 as a starter

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large onion finely sliced

Batter

  • 100 g cream cheese coconut yoghurt if dairy free
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp fennel powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ pack chopped fresh coriander

If you only have curry powder in the cupboard

  • 1 tbsp curry powder only if you don't have separate spices

For frying

  • light in colour olive oil

Instructions
 

  • In a medium bowl place the cream cheese. Give it a stir.
  • Beat one egg in at a time until incorporated.
  • Beat in the psyllium husk powder.
  • Add all the other batter ingredients. Leave to stand for 10 minutes while the psyllium thickens.
  • Stir in the sliced onion.
  • You will need a frying pan filled about 2cm deep with oil. Heat the oil over a medium high heat.
  • Add serving spoon sized scoops of onion and batter mixture to the pan. About 4 at a time. And cook until golden brown each side, for approx. 7 minutes in total.
  • Drain on kitchen towel and keep warm until ready to serve with lemon wedges, mint yoghurt and salad.
