Methi Bhaji cake

I love methi bhaji….in so many different ways. One of my favourite ways to use it is in methi bhaji cake/lagan. 

I love this recipe because it’s so easy. I always change it up and try to throw more bhaji in the mix. I also sometimes add double the amount of bhaji for serious overload. Feel free to play with the recipe as you like.

Switch on your oven to 180 degrees C.

What you need:

1 onion, cleaned and quartered

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

8-10 green chillies (less if you’re worried about it being too chilli)

Liquidise the above.

I chucked in a bunch of bhaji into the blender too.
In a bowl add:

1/2 cup Chana flour

2 tblsp flour

1/2 cup mealie meal

2 & 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp dhana jeero

1/4 tsp turmeric

Mix the above. Then add:

1 tin creamstyle sweetcorn

1 cup (or more) chopped methi bhaji

1 cup oil

Liquidised mixture from above.

Mix well. Add to a greased dish. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.

Bake until it’s done, slightly cracked on the top and lightly browned on the sides.
