How to make Pyaaz posto

  1. To a Kadai add mustard oil, temper it with Nigella seeds.
  2. Once the fragrance comes add the chopped onions.
  3. Add salt, sugar and turmeric powder.
  4. Cook the onions till soft.
  5. Meanwhile dry grind the poppy seeds first. Then grind with green chillies and little water to form a nice paste.
  6. Once the onions are cooked add the poppy seeds paste and cook till the raw smell of poppy seeds disappear.
  7. Keep stirring in between to prevent the mixture sticking to the Kadai. If it dries up too much you can add little water
  8. Stir it often and cook till water evaporates and you can see the oil from the sides.
  9. Serve hot with hot rice.
My Tip: Drizzle mustard oil before turning off the flame for more authentic taste.
