comment Is it possible my cream was too cold prior to whipping?
Unless it's frozen, there's no really no such thing as too cold for whipping cream! Olga's suggestion that the solids rose to the top sound most likely, in which case you should be able to just fold them back together before whipping.

Have you tried the standard Asian bamboo steamers? They are effective, dirt cheap (especially if you have an Asian supermarket nearby) and durable.

comment Is it possible to make onion Bhajis without a deep fryer?
Not really, you wouldn't get the same 'caramelisation'. You can reheat fried bhaajis in the oven though.
