4 onions, peeled and thinly sliced

Low-calorie cooking spray

2 small sweet potatoes, punctured and microwaved for 7 minutes until soft

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon chilli powder (adjust for desired spice level)

1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

In a capacious non-stick pan, apply low-calorie cooking spray and gently sauté the thinly sliced onions over medium heat for roughly 10 minutes until they turn tender and golden. Afterwards, remove the onions from the heat and allow them to cool for a few minutes.

While the onions cool, extract the flesh from the microwaved sweet potatoes into a bowl and mash them using a fork until they reach a smooth consistency.

To the mashed sweet potatoes, introduce the large egg, turmeric, ground cumin, chilli powder, and salt. Use the fork to comprehensively blend the components, forming a richly flavoured batter.

Incorporate the cooled sautéed onions into the sweet potato mixture, ensuring an even coating.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper to prevent sticking. With your hands, shape the mixture into approximately 12 bhajis, crafting petite, circular fritters.

Thoroughly spritz the formed bhajis with low-calorie cooking spray, encouraging crispness during baking.

Position the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake the bhajis for about 45 minutes, or until they attain a golden and crispy texture.

Once impeccably baked, extract the bhajis from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving.

Savour the tantalizing Slimming World Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis, an indulgence that’s both guilt-free and flavoursome, whether relished as a tasteful appetizer or a snack, gratifying your palate while keeping your slimming voyage on track.
