1/ Whether you’ve been training hard or working tirelessly, consider this your recovery package, full of slow-burning carbs. To make the bhaji, whisk sparkling water into the flour, spices and salt, then add the onion and carrot for a hit of antioxidants and blood sugar-balancing biotin. Heat a pan of oil to 180°C, roll the mix into balls and deep-fry. 2/ To pickle your onions, simply slice and soak in lime juice and salt until they turn bright pink. The pleasing aesthetics aside, the extra vitamin C will work to reduce your cortisol levels. 3/ To assemble, spread the yogurt and chutney on the bread and top with the onions and herbs, before stuffing in a few bhajis. Add a sprinkle of Bombay mix for extra crunch – and devour.
