Onion Vadagam Recipe - Onion Vadam Recipe - Thalippu Vadam Recipe

Onion Vadagam is a must have ingredient in your kitchen cupboard. What you do is, just break small piece of it and fry in hot oil till golden. Pour this over chutney or any kuzhambu for added flavour. Instead of making seasoning with mustard, curry leaves and other stuffs for chutney, you can use this. Now it is summer here, so we are making variety of vadam here. 

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
