Who knew that these dainty purple beauties could pack such a punch? They are as sharp and delicious in taste as their bulbs and their stalks. Made into Pakoras, they tasted outta sight!!! After all the traditional Indian snack, pakoras does require a ton of onions - this was a novelty and a runaway hit with the folks at home - do try if you have a blossoming onion plant growing in your backyard.
