Hello and welcome to my corner again. Today I’ll be sharing a very spicy, crunchy and yummy recipe called Masala Onions. It is basically blanched onions shallow fried in aromatic masalas which can serve as a creative alternative to pickles. It is prepared instantly and I hope you will like it. So let’s start with it—
- Salt-According to taste
- Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp
- Coriander-Powder-1 tsp
- White Vinegar-1 tsp
- Chat Masala-1 tsp
- Garam Masala-1 tsp
- Dry Mango Powder-1 tsp
- Pickle Masala-1 tsp

- Vegetable Oil-1 tbsp
Wash, scrape and blanch the onions for two minutes in water mixed with vinegar and salt. Make vertical or horizontal cuts on the onions before blanching them.
Take all the masalas in a bowl and mix vegetable oil in it.
Now wipe the onions and fill the slits with the above-made masala. Heat a thick-bottomed pan and shallow fry these onions in it till browned.
Our Masala Onions are done. Serve them with steamed rice, dal, potato fries, poppadums, and sesame peanut chutney. It is a spicy, crunchy, and tasty accompaniment to your lunch or dinner platters. It is a good alternative to pickles but should be spiced well enough.
Note point:-The dish must necessarily be more tangy, spicy and chatpata and if you don’t have pickles in your kitchen these onions will just very well fit in. Cut the masala onions into pieces before serving. You can alternately roast these onions.
