Asparagus Bhajias 

Asparagus Bhajias 

Perfect for summer, and made with one of my favourite vegetables, Asparagus Bhajias are my new favourite. 

Eaten hot with a cold beer or cider to enjoy it with, it is the perfect starter to have alfresco on summery days.

Great for dinner parties too for nibbles!


  • 8 Asparagus stalks, quartered
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • Handful coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoons semolina
  • 100 grams gram flour
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 70 ml water


  1. In a bowl, mix the gram flour and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the asparagus, onions, chilli and coriander and add the spices. Mix it all up well.
  3. Add the spiced vegetables to the flour and slowly pour in 70ml water.
  4. Mix still slightly sticky but not too runny.
  5. Now fill a wok/karai with oil 3/4 full and heat.
  6. Once hot, lower the heat to medium.
  7. Add batches of the mixture in to fry until golden. Simply take a handful and press it together firmly before placing into the oil.
  8. Let the fried ones sit on a piece of kitchen paper to drain off any oil and enjoy hot.
