The freedom to eat your favourite Indian spicy food is back, for Lo-Dough users everywhere. Friday fakeaway? We've got you covered. 

Low Calorie Onion Bhajis

Lo-Dough Onion Bhajis are Nutritional 

These onion bhajis are  slashed to 182 calories for 2 bhajis and thanks to the filling fibre content of Lo-Dough, the bhajis can become the satisfying and complimentary accompaniment to your favourite curry rather than just a snack or starter. 

Lose the carb-heavy and calorific rice and naans - Do curry the Lo-Dough way instead.

Top tip: We've ground a selection of individual spices to make our spice-blend, but if preferred, use a tablespoon of garam masala or a good quality curry powder.
