Slimming bhajis

Made these for Friday night snacks with friends. Fab idea!

  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 175g potato, cooked & chopped
  • 225g canned chickpeas, drained
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp dried Bombay mixed spice
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • Salt & ground black pepper



  • ½ cucumber, chopped
  • Salt
  • 115g fat-free natural yogurt
  • 4 spring onions, chopped


  1. To make the raita place the cucumber in a colander, sprinkle with salt and leave for 30 minutes. Dry well and transfer into a bowl. Stir in the yogurt and spring onions and chill until ready to serve.
  2. To make the bhajis spray a non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and cook the onion for approximately 5 minutes until tender. Transfer to a bowl, add the potato and chick peas and mash together. Stir in the remaining ingredients and form into small balls.
  3. Arrange the bhajis on a baking tray that has been sprayed with low calorie cooking spray. Bake in a preheated oven at 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas Mark 7 for approximately 15 minutes until golden. Serve immediately with the cucumber raita.
