Five curries to make without onions! Definitely a post to bookmark!
So about an hour ago, I got yet another joke on whatsapp on the soaring onion prices and while I laughed I also wondered that what do I cook without onion. I know a lot of Rajasthani and Jain food is indeed cooked without onion but otherwise onion is a pretty integral part of Indian cooking. At least the cooking I do at all. But when I looked on the blog I realised I do have some yummy dishes which are made without onions on the blog and just for fun, here are the top five favorites curries to make without onions!
Kundapur Ghee Roast : my favorite chicken recipes from Karnataka – The Kundapur Ghee Roast, rich and spicy perfect to be had with rotis or with a beer.

Banarasi Peas Nimona : Though best made with fresh peas in winter, it comes out pretty well with frozen peas as well.

Punjabi Kadhi: Yes, the pakoras have onions but I hardly make them anymore. Add any veggies you want and eat it with rotis and rice.
Kadhi Chawal is one of those dishes which define comfort and mom’s love to me! A delicious way to incorporate some curd in your diet!
Capsicum and Ginger Moong: With fantastic flavours of ginger and capsicum it is a very different dal.
Capsicum ginger dal is full of taste, the slight spiciness of the capsicum, the sharpness of ginger and the earthiness of the moong dal! A perfect comfort food option!
Dahi Walla Tinda: And this one can be made with any gourd or even aloo.
Dahi Walla Tinda is something my mom started making a few years ago and I love this way of cooking tinda.
