11/11/2004: Record onion bhaji



If a massive fungus isn't your taste, how about a massive fried onion ball? This onion "bhaji" is apparently a South Asian thing, but has migrated to England because while this one was cooked up in West Bromwich, the previous record holder was in West Yorkshire. Any of our Brits had one of these?

And this one set a record weighing in at an astounding 84 kilograms (185 pounds). The full story claims that one cook inexplicably refused to try for the record, delaying the attempt because he didn't believe it could be done. Apparently it could.

Mmmm...can I get that with a side of Nexium to go?

Is it supposed to look like that, only smaller?

While I have a fair degree of courage related to attempting foreign (non-fungal) muck consumption, that might intimidate me.

I'd rather see a world record sized gulab jaman. Now THAT i could get into.

Ok, the thought of eating onions is infinitely more appealing than eating fungus...and I don't like onions. But that thing looks only slightly less nasty to eat than the truffle.

Maybe it'd look better once they get it on a platter or tray or something and garnish it. Somehow, looking at it wrapped up in what looks like a wet sheet of that plastic you find a construction sites makes it less appealing to the eye...

That looks like Pizza the Hut wrapped in a sari.



YellowBolt  Thursday Nov 11 11:24 AM

So um... what, do you just take a regular old ball of onion and dunk it in a vat of oil?



OnyxCougar  Thursday Nov 11 11:57 AM

I've never tried it, although I generally enjoy Eastern Indian food.



bluesdave  Thursday Nov 11 05:37 PM

I have eaten onion bhajis many times, and they are delicious. They are normally served with a yoghurt sauce (sorry, I don't remember the correct name for it). You can either eat them as an appetiser, or as part of the main meal.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Nov 11 09:53 PM

Does anyone know how they're made?



Roosta  Friday Nov 12 09:04 AM

I've had onion bhajis but none near the size of that pupster!



limey  Friday Nov 12 10:00 AM

Onion bhajis are chopped onion bound in a spicy batter and deep fried, they are usually eaten with that yogurt sauce that dave mentioned. They are delicious, and they are usually around 2 inches in diameter by 3/4 inch deep ...



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Nov 12 06:22 PM

Thanks, limey.
You're a lot nicer than those Highland Barbarians.



busterb  Friday Nov 12 08:22 PM

A hell of a lot easier to fix than Outback blooming onions, Huh?

Hi, this is my first post. I've been reading in this forums for awhile, the discussion about the giant truffle killed me. You guys are hilarious. The idea of the onion bajhi as described sounds GOOD. But, we don't have those here in the U.S. Never heard of those until today...



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Nov 15 07:06 PM

Welcome to the Cellar, pbjPizza. I'd never heard of an onion bajhi or a peanut butter & jelly pizza, either. There's an education to be had here for sure. How long have you been lurking?



Pbjpizza  Monday Nov 15 08:40 PM

My bad, bhaji. I don't know... awhile... maybe six months?

I'll admit, I've been lurking for a while too. You could probably find a bajhi if you have any decent Indian restaurants around you. Sadly, I do not (I do not live close to anything resembling a metropolitan center), although I used to.

And thanks, Bruce, for the welcome in the Hogzilla thread.

If you have any Indian restaurants near you, they probably have them. Or you can make them, it's pretty easy.
