A perfect accompaniment for Appam Quick Idiyappam and Set Dosa too, the Madras Onion Stew is a really exciting preparation of shallots with a mind-boggling array of flavours. Ranging from tangy tamarind pulp to soothing coconut milk, not to forget crunchy onions and a traditional tempering, this dish has a well-balanced set of ingredients, which make it really appealing to the taste buds. However, the real highlight of this recipe is the masala paste made with coconut, ginger, garlic and spice powders. It gives the Madras Onion Stew such an intense aroma that you can smell it simmering in the kitchen even from the neighbour’s house!
