These delectable Indian fritters are a true delight for the taste buds. Thinly sliced onions, generously spiced and enveloped in a chickpea flour batter, are fried to perfection until golden and crispy. Pairing them with cucumber raita, a refreshing dip made with yogurt, grated cucumber, and aromatic herbs, adds a cool and creamy contrast that complements the bhajis beautifully. The cooling effect of the raita balances the spicy kick of the bhajis, creating a harmonious and irresistible combination that leaves you craving for more.
