Put the gram flour, cumin seeds, coriander, turmeric, salt and mixed spice into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Add the water and whisk to make a paste.
Finely grate the potato into the bowl and stir to combine
Finely grate the onion, breaking it into individual pieces as it goes into the bowl.

Gorgeous recipe - the nicest bhajis any of us have ever tasted and so simple to make. I made a couple of small changes - also added 1/4 teaspoon mild chilli powder and chopped the onion very fine rather than grate having once had an unfortunate experience with grated onion! I also found it needed a drop more water than the 4 tbspn. Congratulations - an absolute winner
