waveOh I have made them too.  I once had to provide an Indian meal for 12 people as a prize at an auction and I made onion bhajiis and vegetable pakora as side dishes.   Boy were they good.

I've only made onion bhajis once and liked them but I don't think I used enough batter. Apart from that they tasted good.

The naan bread recipe I use (which came from The Saturday Kitchen) has onion seeds in it and I'm afraid to try making them without because I've convinced myself that it's the seeds which give it the traditional flavour. Fortunately we had the seeds in the kitchen from a spice kit I got for christmas 2 years ago (everyone seems to be giving me food related prezzies - I don't complain smile)

Wow, what a wonderful prize an Indian meal, onion bhajis, veg pakora, great idea, I would imagine the winner was delighted!

I could just eat all of that now, yummy. Never made onion bhajis either, I'm going to have to expand my horizons I think!

You've inspired me again. I shall enjoy experimenting and feasting, it's good to have something different to dine on for a change. Thank you. I'm off shopping.......

Watching the Hairy Bikers - "Mums Know Best" they had an Indian lady preparing some of these little treasures - oh they did look good ..... mmmmm

I must've mentioned it a few times to the family as I received two books (same) for Christmas. Daughter was well-pleased, as she had the second one!!

ok

I have made that soup for lunch - it was really tasty. See here.

Mmm - just had a thought - this may be on the wrong thread  doh

(That would make a change, eh, TA?)

Perhaps should be in 'Soups and Starters' .... ?

Bless us eh Val?roll_eyes I don't think it's a big deal, it's a link to photos now if you want to post the recipe, then perhaps you would do that in soups and starters?

I'll try that again!

Could be "Son knows best", with his recommendation of the soup!.......lol

You are a clever 'foodie family', that must come from your talent in the culinary department.  The soup is fantastic, warming, filling, 'comfort food', but boy that is a tasty soup, a meal in itself!

I did have seconds though, couldn't resist, shall have the rest for lunch today, intended to freeze some.....not a chance.  I shall make double the quantities next time (tomorrow) so that I will have some left worthy of putting in the freezer, well it seems such a shame, I may as-well make a big batch to ensure that I will have some to freeze!  That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it....ha, ha, feel ever so greedy.

I wish that I had watched the Hairy Bikers, I shall look out for the book, yes I imagine your daughter was pleased with the book. Much appreciated, Odelle.cheers

Thank you, you have all made me feel so welcome been helpful in every possible way and even better now that I know not to feel forward always 'asking', you are such lovely people, thanks so much.

I'm getting 'braver' still each time I visit, it's all down to you all and Fiona & Danny of course.

It is an exceptional site, it's having the personal touch that does it and such nice members.  Well done to all for making it possible! welldone wave

Also a page with samosas here: again from the Hairy Bikers.

Might try these, as they did look good on the programme. ok

Is it the correct season for Scallops?  If it is I might get some on Monday.
