Sweet Potato & Onion Bhajis

Perfect as a starter or a snack, these easy peasy spicy onion bhajis are baked in the oven with a little spray oil, so no deep fried fat here!

A spicy Indian fake away treat, delicious with an authentic middle eastern flavour, that you will want to eat again and again – no more popping to the take away on a Friday or Saturday night, when these are so simple! Every bhaji comes in at 60 calories, which is almost half the calories of shop bought bhajis, and goodness knows how much less than those from your local takeaway.  Enjoy them with spicy sweet chilli sauce, mango chutney or cooling yogurt and mint dip.
