Sift the plain flour, bicarbonate of soda
and chili powder into a bowl. Make a small hole in the center and pour
in the combined egg and water. Stir to make a smooth creamy batter. Add
more water if required. Add the garlic and onion. Mix well. Heat a wok
with oil of about 1 cm deep. Drop in tablespoons of the mixture and
press into patties. Fry the onion bhaji on both sides until golden brown
and thoroughly cooked. Drain on absorbent papers. Serve immediately
while still hot with some chili sauce.
