It all started with Kellie’s onion bhaji potato scones..

 It’s not news that I love Kellie’s blog and her recipes, she always inspires and excites me with her food 🙂

Recently she posted these fabulous ‘onion bhaji potato scones‘, an amalgamation of cuisines and flavours brought together to create a tasty flatbread. I made them the same week that she posted them and served them with an Indian feast that I had made for myself and my boys and they were a great success. I produced 14 mini breads and there was only 3 left at the end of the meal! 

I finished them off the next day with some roasted root vegetables and fresh tahini sauce (above & below). 

  The recipe triggered some other ideas in me…an element of the recipe is to make a spiced onion mixture and I liked it so much that I increased the quantities and cooked my version of the onion mixture with coconut oil. I like the idea of red onion chutney but I can’t stomach all of the sugar, so this was my version in a way..


4 red onions, peeled and chopped

2-3 tbsp coconut oil 

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp ground roasted cumin

1/2 tsp ground roasted caraway 

1 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp onion powder 

2 tsp amchoor powder


I started by heating the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat and added the onions to start softening them

I then added all of the spices and cooked the mixture over a low heat for 30-45 minutes so that it caramelised…

It was so good!!! I used it in various ways one of which was to create a quick pizza: 

I spread the mixture over a plain flatbread (I used ‘khobez’, Arabic bread) and topped with crumbled goats cheese and baked until the cheese softened..
How good does that look?? I can tell you that it was good!

In my next post I’ll share what else I did with the onion mixture…

        OK now that I have a moment to discuss the potatoes!!! The potatoes were amazing! I made a bag of potatoes which might have been 10? They were gone! I am back to dieting but had to have some! I thought how would this simple recipe make fantastic potatoes but, they were outstanding. I wanted to take a picture so I could a post and include you but I cooked all day and then they disappeared! They are going into my recipes when I can make a proper post and have pictures, then I will save them as Elaine’s amazing potatoes!! Thanks dear!

        That’s wonderful, I’m so pleased!!!! You write your methods down and just hope that they work as well for other people in their kitchens as they do for you, but you never know until someone actually makes them do you?? So this is wonderful feedback, thank you so much xxx
