I love onion bhajis. Greasy, stodgy, golden oniony balls of glory. These Syn Free Onion Bhajis have the same characteristics as their Indian takeaway brothers, but without the oil, the unhealthiness and without the guilt of eating 17 in one sitting.
These onion bhajis are completely syn free and very satisfying indeed. Great on their own or served with a curry. And best of all, if you wish to cook 17 and eat them in one sitting, be my guest.
The secret to making perfect Syn Free Onion Bhajis is Frylight. You need to use a decent amount before they go in the oven.
Then turn them over halfway through cooking and give them another good spray.
When ever we need to replace oil to cook things in the oven we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

Prepare the main ingredients - Peel and cut the red onions into thin half moons. Peel and cut the sweet potato into manageable chunks, and grate using a normal cheese grater.
Add both ingredients into a big bowl. Add to that mixture two beaten eggs and the spices.
Mix the mixture. Mix it good. Mix it like you've never mixed anything before. Unless you're a DJ well versed in mixes, stick to your music, you're amazing.
Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and spray liberally with Frylight. Get your hands dirty and roll the mixture into rough balls. Place onto the baking tray so they're not touching each other. Once arranged, spray again with Frylight, you can't use enough of it.
Place in an oven set at 180°C (fan) for 20-30 minutes, depending on how big you've made the bhajis. About half way through, turn them over using a spatula and spray again with Frylight. If you want them to be crispier, grill them for a few minutes once they're cooked.
Serve and enjoy however you'd like them. Lovely with a bit of fresh coriander, salt and pepper.
