Gram or chickpea flour is naturally gluten free so makes an ideal ingredient for allergy bub. It is available in most large supermarkets or south Asian stores. These bhajias freeze well and are easy to defrost in the microwave. I usually make the double the amount of batter and once there’s enough for bub, I add 1 teaspoon each of salt, ground cumin, ground coriander and chilli flakes for a delicious non baby snack! Makes 12 to 15.
1 cup gram flour
1/2 cup of water
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
I medium potato
I small onion
1 handful of spinach (raw)
Mix together the gram flour, water and baking powder to form a thick batter. The consistency should be like a cake batter. Finely slice the potato, onion and spinach and add to mixture. Other vegetables such as sweetcorn and peas can also be added. Deep fry spoonfuls of the mixture for about 3 to 5 mins till golden.
