Onion Subzi(Kande Ki Subzi)

Onion Subzi
Rajasthan is a beautiful place with a wonderful cuisine...Mostly rajasthan food is vegetarian..Today I made a typical Rajasthani thali meals with Rice,Roti,Onion subzi,Gatte ki subzi,Rajasthani potato curry,Panchmela dal..How cool is that..(Check picture below..Will post every recipe over the coming weeks)...A typical Rajasthani dish where onions are cooked in a spicy yoghurt mixture.This is a easy subzi that calls for only one ingredient that is ONION...It is a great side dish for chappati and rice. Dont chop the onions so small,you want it in big pieces,so that the onions wont melt away in the curry.Please try this and let me know what you think...


Onions – 2 Cups sliced
Curd- 1/2 cup
Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
Asafoetida-1/2 tsp
