Bharwa Pyaz (Stuffed Onion)

bharwa pyaz

Bharwa pyaz is made from small sized red onions. My mother-in-law used to cook them really well. My family likes bharwa pyaz as we like to eat onion in all its form.
Recipe of bharwa pyaz
6-7 small sized red onions- peeled and washed
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp saunf (fennel) powder
1/2 tsp amchoor (dried mango powder)
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp oil
pyaz stuffed with spices

1. Make cross like slits in the onions without separating from the base (as shown in the picture).
2. In a small bowl, mix salt and all the spices except turmeric powder. Stuff this spice mixture in the pyaz using a clean knife.
3. Heat oil in a pan and add turmeric powder. Cook for 2 seconds and spread it in the oil using a spatula. Add stuffed onions.
4. Lower heat and cook covered. Turn the pyaz over when the underside is cooked so that onions are roasted from all sides. Do not overcook.
5. Serve hot bharwa pyaaz with roti or paratha.
