Onion Magic

  “It’s probably illegal to make soups, stews and casseroles without plenty of onions.” -Maggie Waldron

 It’s hard to imagine my food without Onion and Garlic. The flavor of Onions and Garlic being sautéed in the ‘tadka’ is simply irresistible. Especially in the evenings nearing dinnertime, you go for a walk and you are sure to get this irresistible aroma from someone’s kitchen window. Both onions and Garlic add the required ‘zing’ to my food.


Here’s a simple starter from Tarla Dalal. Very quick and easy to make; yummy to taste-family opinion. Baby onions (I used Madras onions) and mushrooms sautéed in butter and seasoned with Tabasco sauce and Oregano (I used the oregano seasoning you get with Dominos pizzas). This can be served as a starter or as a side dish. I served it as a side dish with Tomato- Basil Pasta.


recipeOnion Mushroom with Oregano recipe as adapted from Tarla Dalal



  • 10 baby onions , peeled
  • 10 button mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon Tobasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt to taste

 Heat the butter in a saucepan and sauté the onions till they turn light brown.

Add the button mushrooms and cook for some time (till the excess water evaporates).

Finally add the Tobasco sauce, oregano and salt and mix well.

Serve hot with toothpicks pierced in each mushroom and onion.

 The original recipe recommends spring onions for garnishing. I did not have any on hand so I have not added.
