Bharwa Pyaz/Stuffed Onion/Pearl Onion Curry

This dish comes out straight from our Rajasthani cuisine. Generally onions are used as an ingredient for other dishes; It's very rare you come across a curry which is just made from onion. This recipe is very quick and easy !!! It just needs basic ingredients from you kitchen pantry and dish is ready. My mom used to make this curry and serve with roti's often for Sunday night dinner after heavy lunch and breakfast on Sunday  Also you can make this curry when you are out of  green veggies.

Pearl onions (I got a small bag containing 15-18)
1 tbs red chili powder
2 tbs dhaniya powder
1/4 tsp tumeric powder
2 tbs tamarind pulp
Oil for tadka
Mustard seeds
Cumin seeds
Pinch of hing
Salt to taste
Few spoons of water

How I Prepare

1. Peel the skin of onions, and make half slit on both the sides of onion making sure you don't cut the onion into pieces (Similar to what we do for Baigan(Eggplant)). Also always cut from the bottom side.

2. Mix all the masala ingredients into a paste adding few drops of water.

3. Don't make the masala too watery.

4. Stuff the masala into the onions, while stuffing be careful do not wide open the slit it could break the onions.

5. Heat up the oil in a wide pan. Add hing, mustard seeds, jeera and then add the stuffed onion and left over  masala if you have.  Lower the flame give it a gentle fry.

6. Cover the pan with a lid and cook it for 10-15 minutes, occasionally give it a stir.

7. Serve it hot with roti or paratha.
