· 1 small red onion, thinly sliced

· 1 clove garlic, minced
· 1 teaspoon coriander

Mix red onion, yellow onion, salt, jalapeno, garlic, coriander, chilli powder, turmeric, and cumin in a large bowl. Stir until evenly combined. Add chickpea flour and water. Stir to incorporate into a thick batter. Add more water if necessary. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into the basket and flatten. Repeat as many times as your basket allows without the bhajis touching
Cook in the preheated air fryer for 6 minutes. Mist the tops of each bhaji with cooking spray. Flip and cook 6 additional minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.
