Instant Onion Pickle is a delicious pickle made with onions which can served right away, not only that it is a great accompaniment with almost all dishes, specially North Indian meals .
Our April marathon was all about Biryani , Pulaos and Khichadis , and while we made these I made a Achaari Paneer Pulao and served this Instant Onion Pickle with the rice . The Pulao was delicious , but trust me it was highlighted with this onion pickle . Paneer Tikka and onions is a combo made in heaven and it was only natural that I follow it while making a Achaari Paneer Pulao .
The instant onion pickle recipe was first introduced by my younger daughter . Every time she makes some Awadhi dishes this pickle is a must as it really compliments the dishes very well . She is a wonderful Cake Baker in Japan , but I get amazed to see her cooking skills . She works at a jet speed and comes up with her own versions of odd combinations which work so so well .
I never thought I would make a separate post for this pickle , but I had to ! I got many requests for it . So here I am with this super delicious instant onion pickle . Enjoy !
