Chapathi with Onions Subji

Often at night, I am so confused on what should be made subji to be made for rotis or chapatis.. its should be easy breezy to make and at the same time taste. One quick fix that I end up making at least twice in a week is the Onion subji . I say this is a quick fix as the ingredients are available in any normal kitchen. 
I would make this dish to make my menu look large too. 


Onions ( sliced ) - 2 cups
Curry leaves - a few
Red Chili powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil and jeera seeds for tempering


Heat oil in a wok and add jeera seeds 
Once they turn golden add the sliced onions and saute well
Add the spice powders and mix well
Sprinkle a little water to give the subji a consistency
When they all come as a gravy adjust salt and temper with curry leaves.
Yummy Onion Subji Ready

Blogging Marathon Meeting : One year gone by, but memories still fresh...

Just a year back, a group of bloggers from across the country decided to meet in person and have some good fun, sharing love and knowledge. So the plan was to meet at Ahmedabad and hence our journey began. We got to meet the faces behind the blogs that we visit daily and interact over the various technologies available. Today each of our day starts and ends with this wonderful group of ladies from across the globe. One thing that brings us together is the love for cooking and trying various recipes from around the subcontinent and the globe. I am very very proud to be a part of this group. I must also admit that though I am not a regular blogger as compared to all others, they serve as inspiration to me in more than one aspects.

Let me refresh our memories with some photos that I clicked during the trip. (I was the official photographer of the whole trip)

Loads of goodies that I had got from my very sweet and thoughtful friends

Like real crazy people, we stopped a amla vendor to click and smell the fresh fennel he had.
