Water for the Batter
a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
b) Roughly chop the coriander (stalk and all).
c) Zest and cut the lime into wedges.
d) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
e) Grate the Cheddar cheese.
a) In a medium bowl, add the lime zest, Greek style yoghurt and half the coriander. Season with salt and pepper, then mix well.
b) Add the mango chutney to a small serving bowl. Set both dips aside for later.
c) Halve, peel and thinly slice the onions.
d) In a medium bowl, combine the flour, water for the batter (see pantry for amount) and North Indian style spice mix (add less if you'd prefer things milder). Mix until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sliced onion, then mix until combined.
a) In a medium bowl, combine the garlic and the butter (see pantry for amount). Season with salt and pepper.
b) Spread the garlic butter over your naans, top with the grated cheese, then place on a baking tray and set aside for the next step.
a) Put a large frying pan on high heat and add enough oil to completely coat the bottom of the pan. TIP: You want the oil to be hot so the bhajis fry properly - heat for 2-3 mins before you add the bhajis.
b) Whilst the oil heats, place the naan baking tray on the top shelf of the oven and bake until the cheese is golden and melted, 5-6 mins.
a) Once the oil is hot, carefully spoon the onion mixture into the frying pan, creating 3-4 piles of the mixture. Reduce the heat to medium-high and fry until golden brown and cooked through, 3 mins on each side.
b) Once cooked, transfer the bhajis to a clean plate lined with kitchen paper.
c) Once the kitchen paper has absorbed any excess oil, transfer the bhajis to a large sharing platter and finish with a sprinkling of salt.
a) Add the baked cheesy naans to your sharing platter, then sprinkle over the remaining coriander.
b) Serve the coriander yoghurt and mango chutney alongside for dipping. Serve the lime wedges alongside to finish.
