Add the turmeric, cumin, ginger, coriander, chilli and stir well.

Remove from the heat.

Place the Gram flour, salt, coriander, cumin into a bowl and mix well.
Add the onions and tomato puree and mix.
Add a little bit of water to the mix, it should be not too stiff but not sloppy.
Drizzle some oil onto the parchment lined tray.
Wet your hands and scoup enough of the onion mix and roll into a golf ball sized ball.
