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, ateast 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.
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 add it with rotis and rice.
Capsicum and Ginger Moong: With fantastic flavours of ginger and capsicum it is a very different dal.
Dahi Walla Tinda: And this one can be made with any gourd or even aloo.
So tell me what are your favorite curries to make without onions.
