Howdah Onion Bhaji (Deli on the Square, Ludlow) By @SpectreUK

Howdah Onion Bhaji

I'm having a greedy lunch today. I'm going to write about these Howdah Onion Bhaji crisps. It's a big packet, and I'm going to eat the lot. I'm kidding myself a little that I'm being healthy(ish) by eating the whole packet with a tuna and tomato salad. I'll also have some fruit and a protein yoghurt to finish. So, sort of of healthy.

These Howdah Onion Bhaji crisps were made predominantly of semolina, which I believe is a new one for me. Produced in half moon shapes, which is a shape that rather pleases me as a Moonchild, each packet sold provides a school lunch for a child somewhere. The back of the packet states that these crisps have a "mellow onion flavour, with zesty lemon, turmeric, and a kick of chilli." It's a shame I don't have a beer handy to wash them down with.

On opening the packet there was a mild curry aroma from the inside of the bag. These semolina crisps were very crunchy indeed. You can see from the photograph they were a solid rounded crescent in shape. They had a mild curry flavour to start with, and then a little onion and quite a medium to hot kick, as they say, from the chillis. These Howdah Onion Bhaji crescents left a lovely chilli burn in my mouth and a flavour of curry and onions into the aftertaste. I shall definitely have to pop back to Ludlow sometime and get some more.
