Onion is a basic ingredient in most of the dishes in India, an obvious bystander and easily available side dish.  But in case the onion prize shoots up all of a sudden or you need to avoid onion for a ritual, be assured there are some amazing dishes that are made without this vegetable. Here are some mouth-watering foods you don’t need onion for.

1. Papdi Chaat

Dilli’s favourite street food never relied on onions and never will. It’s strong, independent and delicious. Crispy papdi, tangy aloo masala, spicy green chutney and sweet red chutney are all flavours that magically blend perfectly well on just one plate. Then comes the soothing calming dahi poured all over so that all these elements can be moulded into one big plate of love. Ashok Chaat Corner is a must visit place that sells this onion free foodie’s delight for ₹100.

2. Ram Laddu

Fried balls of dal pakode topped with mooli and green chutney is the simplest and most brilliant way to show your ex you’re moving on. Who needs onions, they don’t even go with pakode. Everybody knows India loves pakode and Delhi has the most iconic pakode place. Even Our iconic Bangla Sahib Gurudwara was not successful in overshadowing this Delhi gem. The 24×7 pakoda stall is at the back side of Delhi’s biggest gurudwara. The place is always flooded with people, 4PM and 4AM alike.

3. Aloo Tikki

Aloo, fry it, roast it, skin it, cheese it, whichever form it takes, we love it. Well, tikki just happens to be our all-time favourite aloo excuse. It’s crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside and just so comforting that we never get tired of it. You can have it with masala and chutneys and dahi or you can take it plain and simple with a dash of salt. It’s a Delhi lifeline on every corner but there’s one place that stands out. It would be worth it to go from any corner of the city to Rohini just for one taste of Bittu Tikki Wala’s onion free food favourite at least once in your lifetime. But you don’t have to. From the streets of Ayodhya to fifteen outlets in Delhi NCR, this place has come a long way.

Jainism is a religion principled on non-violence. So, stop fantasizing about cutting your ex into pieces. Don’t chase your ex either. Remember how onions made you cry? We have a tempting way to get over onions. Pandara Road! It’s not just for meat lovers and butter chicken. There’s a Veg Gulati that has a whole section in their menu dedicated to onion free food. Corn Biryani, Yellow Dal Chawal Combo and Kashmiri Pulao have never been this good!

Delhi’s most iconic state canteen Sarvana Bhavan serves their idlis, dosa, vada and sambar in an onion free food avatar. This place is super pocket-friendly and the best in town for south Indian. All you have to do is ask your server to get your order without onions. When you’re there opt for a ghee dosa instead of a normal one for maximum indulgence, so you feel like your ex doesn’t even exist.
