    Wow – I love caramelized onions – but your version sounds so much better than any I have ever tried! Love the shredded cucumber in it!

    Wow, this dish must have terrific flavor! I love well-done (burnt!) onions, and you’ve really taken it up a level with this. Good stuff – thanks so much.

    This is a completely new dish to me and I love the sound of it. What a great mix of flavors — adding grated cucumber, especially. It’s nice that you have such warm family memories associated with it, too. 🙂

    I have bought home some of these babies. I love them soaked in vinegar like you would get in restaurants when you when to have Mughlai khana! Your recipe looks really interesting! Back in your blog after a really long time, hope you are doing well 🙂

    They look extraordinary! If I ever stumble upon small onions at my market I will certainly prepare them charred and spicy, just like you did. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

    I’ve never tried anything like this but it sounds delish and I’m sure the longer they cook the sweeter they become. These look like shallots – are they?

    No, I have never heard of burnt onions! What an interesting dish and because I love onions, it’s highly probable that I would love this dish. Was very surprised to see the grated cucumber. What a very interesting dish. Thanks for sharing this Purabi!

    Those onions look delicious. I also use them as part of pickling as it gives a nice acidity. Thank you Purabi and I hope you are having a great week! 🙂

    Long time back, a friend’s Mom had cooked something similar, and I had been so bowled over. This reminds me of that time. Beautifully delightful!

    i cooked some of these pearl onions (the name used in the States) the other day in a lamb stew and i absolutely love their flavor. The partially burnt onion has that special aroma that nothing compares. I think i’ll fall in love with their burnt onions dish.The use of curry powder is going to give it such a nice flavor. Will try it soon. Thanks for sharing!

    Interesting! I don’t think I’ve tried baby onions before.. wait I just saw Juliana below said “pearl onion” and if that’s the same then I’ve tried cooking once before! I put it in the chowder. 😀 Love how you spiced them up!
