Kande Bhaaji/ Onion Bhaaji

Kando or Onion is such a staple vegetable that everyone will have it in their pantry. Aayi would sometime prepare this when she was on time crunch. Today I made this coz that is all I had it my pantry. The simple ingredient list and the ease of preparation will make you want to try this recipe.
Serves: 4 | Prep. Time: 5 min. | Cooking Time: 10 min.

·         Onions – 5 (About 3 cups when cut)
·         Tomato – 4 (About 2 cups when cut)
·         Garlic – 4 cloves (cut into strips)
·         Turmeric powder – ½ tsp.
·         Chili powder – 1 tsp.
·         Coriander / Dhaniya powder – ½ tsp.
·         Cumin / Jeera powder – ½ tsp.
·         Oil – 1 tsp.
·         Salt to taste
Method of Preparation:
~ Peel the onions and slit them into thin strips.
~ Wash and cut the tomatoes into thin strips.
~ Heat oil in a cooking pan and add onions and garlic.

~ Cook on high heat until onion starts to turn translucent. The idea on high heat is so that onion doesn’t leave water and stays crunchy.
~ Reduce the heat and add turmeric, cumin, coriander and chili powder. Mix them well.
~ Add tomatoes and increase the heat again to cook the tomatoes.

~ Add salt and switch off the heat once tomatoes are done.
~ Bhaaji can be served with Chapati, puris or Lime Rice.
