  • 85g of gram flour
  • 50g of cornflour
  • 1tbsp curry powder
  • 1tsp fennel seeds, lightly toasted
  • ½ tsp turmeric

  • Juice of half a lime

  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced

  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Serve with raita


1) Pre-heat a deep fat fryer to 180c.

2) Whisk all the dry ingredients together. Add the lime juice and enough water to bind – it should be in the form of a loose paste, if a little too runny add a little more gram flour.
3) Fold in the canned salmon, peas, spring onion, garlic, coriander, and red chilli, then season well with sea salt and black pepper. Drop dessertspoons of the mixture into the hot fat and cook in the deep fryer for approximately 2-3 minutes until crispy
and golden. Make sure the centre of the bhaji is cooked through
4) Place the bhajis on a piece of kitchen paper to drain and cool slightly.

5) Serve the salmon and pea bhaji with minted raita. These are great for a canape snack or starter.
