1 big Onion chopped
3 Garlic pods chopped fine
0.5 tsp red chilli powder, Garam masala powder/Kitchen King (Increase/decrease as per taste)

2. Add chopped Garlic and fry until brown
3. Throw in finely sliced Onions

Dear All,
First of all apology for Mentioning, Ujwal as "He", rather it should be "She". Which I came to know only from her second email to me .
Ujwal is right now in China, and as she is not able to access blogs directly , on behalf of her I thank you all for appreciating this recipe :).

Asha &Gattina,
I was thinking about starting this since a long time to introduce non- bloggers sent recipes to metion here explicitly with their name as guest post. Glad that you liked it too :).

I am happy that you liked my recipe , thanks for acknowledging me of that, hugs to you :)
Trupti ,
thanks dear, that is so sweet of you :) .
