Tikka Masala Onion Fritters

1 comment

Generally speaking, I am a huge fan of fritters. My parents grew eating these in India whenever it rained. We love bhajiyas ( fritters) to warm up your insides when it is dreary & cold out. In the US we had bhajiyas in the winter. Easy food that had few ingredients. I love the prep because it is only 10 minutes. I have created an easy way to incorporate Bebe’s All Natural Tikka Masala sauce as my own twist on a classic. Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups Chickpea flour 1 large onion cut into rings 1/4 cup water 1 -2 tablespoons […]
