onion curry recipe | stuffed baby onion sabzi recipe | bhareli dungri nu shaak with step by step photo and video recipe. preparing some yummy gravy based curries is always a tricky job. it’s tricky not because of the recipe but to choose what to prepare for a particular day. you may have premium curries like paneer or kofta’s but that does not come with the easy recipe too. to solve this problem, you may choose basic vegetables like onion and tomato and prepare one of the tasty stuffed curries which are also known as onion curry recipe.

as i was explaining earlier, if roti or chapati is your staple food for lunch and dinner, than you may have faced this question of what curry to prepare? the demand is always for something in gravy and also a tasty one too. moreover, if you prepare the same paneer or mix vegetable curry, it can be monotonous too. to solve this problem, i am suggesting this wonderful stuffed onion curry. basically, the baby onions are slit-like eggplant or in an ‘x’ form at the bottom and the dry spices are stuffed to it. later these stuffed onions are cooked eventually in a tomato and onion sauce to get the rich and creamy gravy sauce. in a nutshell, you would feel the curry very similar to bharli vangi or eggplant, but the use of baby onions would produce a totally different curry altogether. in addition, i have also added thick and creamy yoghurt to make it even more juicy and creamy.

furthermore, i would like to add some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to stuffed onion curry recipe. firstly, the curry is not just limited to baby onions or shallots, but can also be made with any sized onions. the preferred one is shallots. as a matter of fact, you can also make this recipe with any other desired vegetable like brinjal, baby potatoes and zucchini. secondly, if you prefer to have thicker curry base, you can add 1-2 tsp of besan with yoghurt. i do not prefer it that way, but can be added. lastly, when you add the curd or yoghurt ensure to whisk it properly before you mix it the hot curry base. otherwise, it can easily curdle and may not get the desired creamy and silky texture.
