ONION CURRY


This is a very quick curry, yet tasty and can be done in less than 5 minutes, especially when you are running short of time and the vegetables are out of stock.


INGREDIENTS:

Onion - 1/2 kg.
Sambhar powder - 1 tsp.
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 3 tsp.

For tempering:

Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp.
White urad dhal - 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder - a pinch

METHOD:

Chop onions into thin, long pieces.

In a kadai, heat oil and temper with the given ingredients. Add chopped onions, salt & sambhar powder. Saute till done. Serve hot. Using sambhar powder gives a good aroma. This can also be had as a dry curry with chappatis. Best with south Indian thali.

  26. Instead of sambaar podi we use special kari podi prepared for this and it will be really very tasty. and also we will roast it well.
    Good one
