In a medium bowl, mix together the chickpea flour, water, salt, chilli powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander seeds, onion and minced chillies until it forms a smooth mixture with no flour lumps.
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is sizzling hot, drop dough by tablespoonfuls and fry until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with chilli sauce for dipping.
Where I lived in England and Canada these were called Onion Bhagi's (spelling varies). This recipe was good. I'm sure there are many ways to make these and I thought I followed this as directed, but something was missing. I will keep searching for the "perfect" recipe. - 29 Sep 2008
