Cook's Hideout: September 2012

Vankaya Ulli Karam Kura (Eggplant Curry with Onion Masala)

For the 3rd and last of the marathon under the theme "Cooking with Onions", I wanted to make an Indian dish. Onions are quintessential ingredient in Indian cooking, so I wanted to make a dish that utilizes onions in a very traditional way.

Caramelized Onion & Leek Pasta Sauce

Onions are delicious, but they taste divine once caramelized. The pungent and almost spicy taste of raw onions transforms into silky sweetness once onions are slowly cooked until golden and caramelized. Slow cooking is the key to get the right taste and not end up with burnt onions. 

Caramelized onions are great as topping on pizzas, tarts or even on crackers. Stir some softened cream cheese and sour cream into caramelized onions for an instant dip for chips.

Scallion Fried Rice

Time for another edition of Blogging Marathon. Today we start the 20th edition of Blogging Marathon and my theme for this week is "Cooking with Onions". Onions happen to be the most used veggie in my kitchen, not unusual for Indian cooking. But I don't usually make dishes ONLY with onions, they are generally part of the dish but not the entire dish itself (if that makes any sense).
