Dahi Payaaz Curry( Yogurt Onion Curry)

I  have no idea if this curry  is something which is popular in a lot of households or is it just something which is typical of my household. I had seen my Mom make this very often even when we were kids & my brother who is a very fussy eater likes it till date. Whenever the meal cooked at home is not to his liking he will opt for Dahi Payaaz ki sabzi & is so so happy having it. Besides from being easy to make it is also very delicious. My brother likes it a little dryer than what you can see here & it tastes exactly like Paneer bhujiya ( scrambled cheese) I like mine a little more curried & is my favourite for lunch with a little fried rice /especially when I'm all by myself at home & in no mood to cook something for myself from scratch.When Hubby got home day before & I showed him the pictures he exclaimed" this is so typical of you, I have never heard of this curry". His words made me wonder if this is something really typical of me..........noooooooo idea.

So here goes the recipe:

Ingredients :

1 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 onion finally chopped
2 green chillies chopped
salt , red chilli powder & turmeric powder to taste
Fresh cilantro for garnish


Heat oil in a pan & add the cumin seeds , let them splutter.
Add green chillies & onions & saute onions till golden brown.
Now add the dry spices & the yogurt. The yogurt will curdle & looks like you are making cheese so don't be scared.
Let it simmer for 4-5 minutes so some of the water will evaporate . If you'd like it dryer let it simmer for some more time. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

Note: The rice showing here is boiled rice fried with onions , red green & yellow peppers , peas & corn with spices according to taste.
