Vegan Onion & Green Capsicum Chutney/Onion Bellpepper Chutney

If you are a South Indian, you might know very well that our favourite South Indian breakfast aka dosas or idlies calls for varieties of side dishes. Obviously we cant stick always with some usual side dish to serve those breakfast dishes. My family loves different side dishes or chutneys if i serve our own South Indian breakfast dishes. Seriously i always look for a new variety of  chutney to give a try. And i never forget to mix and match the ingredients according to our tastebuds. One of my recent trial to serve along with dosas is my today's onion and green bellpepper chutney. Sauteed green bellpepper and onions spiced with red chillies and few more spices makes this incredible chutney.

Vegan Onion Rasam/Spiced Onion Rasam/Neerulli Saaru

Rasam is a medicinal Indian soup which is prepared everyday to please our tastebuds as well as to helps for easy digestion. This dish is quite a usual one at home. A kind of comforting food for me. Am running this week's blogging marathon with One vegetable different ways as theme. Once i picked Onions as the vegetable for this week's theme, i couldnt resist to prepare a rasam with. This rasam is definitely a fingerlicking dish which is quite a comforting food as well. Rasam, this dish is usually made with a grounded spiced rasam powder which calls for a combination of spices. But this onion rasam is seriously different from the usual rasam. Onion rasam calls for white onions which is quite not a usual one for making rasam. Mostly shallots are used for dishing out this incredible dish, but for a change i tried this dish with white onions.

Am running this week's blogging marathon with  One vegetable different ways as theme, since i dont want to run behind any other vegetables, i went on dishing out three different dishes with my favourit Onions. Yes i picked Onion as my vegetable of this week. Onions is a must in my cooking, if i dont have enough onions at home i feel like missing something in my cooking. Yes i cant survive without onions and tomatoes. Just with these two vegetables, i can cook many different dishes with an ease. Hence i couldnt think more than picking onions as my prominent vegetable for this week's theme. Onions are extremely flavourful, whether raw or cooked, onions are super healthy.Raw onions have higher levels of organic sulfur compounds while the boiled ones are good source of fiber and copper. It was found that people with highest consumption of onions have lowest cancer rates, they also helps to lower blood sugar level. Onions have numerous nutritional and health benefits.
