About Onion Stuffed Recipe

Onions are widely consumed in our daily diet. It is one of the most vital ingredient in our cooking. Well there are many recipes without onions. All onion lovers will just love it. It is worth a try and I bet it will be a regular feature on your list. Did you know that onions are high in vitamin C, a good source of fiber, and with only 45 calories per serving, add abundant flavor to a wide variety of food. Onions are sodium, fat, cholesterol free and provide a number of other key nutrients. Well I wanted to cook something different, yummy, healthy and easy too. So thought of experimenting again. I have tried with a very basic masala stuffing. We can stuff scrambled paneer/eggs, bread crumbs, brown rice and minced meat. There are plenty of options.

You can replace peanuts with roasted gramflour. It tastes yumm and gives a feeling of having pyaaz ka pakora. I prepare this in this way. Haven't tried in microwave, but now will do so.
