Mix everything together until it resembles a chunky oniony batter.
Make your raita. Add coconut yogurt to a bowl. Add a large handful of grated cucumber (squeeze gratings to get rid of excess water), a handful of chopped mint and coriander, salt and pepper. Mix everything together.
Heat some vegetable oil in a pan. Add a tablespoon of your bhaji batter. Flatten it out and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Cook 2 bhajis per burger.
Cut your bap in half and whack it under the grill to toast up.
Assembly time. Add a big dollop of raita to the bap. Then add a bhaji. Then more raita, then another bhaji. Top with a big dollop of mango chutney and some mint leaves. Take a big bite and enjoy!
