onion bhagees and.... does anyone have a strawberry recipe?

I'm luckily to work at an Indian Restaurant and so am always picking up how to make things from the chefs. Measuring doesn't really happen a lot with these recipes so these are all really rough estimates. This recipe calls for working with your hands so I'd recommend gloves as the tumeric stains.

Onion Bhagees

3 large onions - finely sliced
2 leaves silverbeet - cut/shredded
curry leaves ( if you can find them - optional)
tumeric (1 - 2 Tbsp)
cumin seeds (1 -2 tsp)
chilli powder (1/2 to 1 tsp)
coriander powder (1 - 2 tsp)
garlic paste/crushed garlic (1 Tbsp)
ginger paste (2 tsp)
lemon juice (1 - 2 tbsp)
chickpea flour 1 to 1/2 cups

all the dry ingredients in (onions, sliverbeet, tumeric, cumin seeds, chilli pwdr, coriander pwdr) and mix. add garlic, ginger and lemon juice. mix again. add chickpea flour and just enough water to get it sticky (I used about 3 handfuls or so).  shape into rough balls and put into a deep frier/oil at 160' Celcius. golden brown when cooked.

also i bought a 1kg bag of frozen strawberries the other day. any brownie/cake/dessert ideas? Other fruit I currently have in stock is honeydew melon, bananas, dates, apples and lemons. And I live in New Zealand so its hard/expensive to get any sort of speciality ingredients e.g. powdered egg replacer, soy cream

Thanks in advance!
