Baby Onions and Chilies in Vinegar

Some time ago I had put some baby onions (sambar onions) in vinegar and forgotten about it. Then yesterday I bought these chilies for Mirch ka Salan that I want to try out. I removed the baby onions to check the taste. I flipped completely.

I knew I would not need more than 6 chilies for the two of us so had to do something with the rest of the chilies. They went into the vinegar. That was the easiest way to enhance my fantasies of jalapenos in vinegar. I washed and pat dried them. One slit in each chili to ensure pickling inside out. I let the chilies swim in the onion pink vinegar and let the already pickled onions in the same jar sit atop the green chilies. They looked picture perfect I thought.

I know they are not jalapenos but can someone tell me what type they are?

  1. i luv to eat onions in vinegar,..nice click...

  2. i have never tried onions in pic!

  3. hey, my husband tried the pickled onions you had given....and....he LOVVVVEEEEDD it. He asked me to find the recipe and make it for him :-) He's fallen in love with it...crazily :-)

  4. Hey dear how are you and the lil one?

    Oh those onions are easy. Get the 10 rs. packet of cleaned sambar onions from Big Bazaar and put them in vinegar. Once color changes they are ready to eat.

  5. What is DOP Certification for Balsamic Vinegar?
    DOP certification "Denominazione di Origine Protetta", or Protected Designation of Origin, is granted to select balsamic vinegar makers in the Modena province in Italy.When you select a DOP certified product, you are assured that it is the product of a unique tradition and culture, guaranteeing the highest unadulterated quality with unrivaled flavor.

  6. They are not jalapenos, they are either serrano chilli or Thai Chillies

  7. Oh Travel bug thank you! yes I googled and am convinced they are serrano.


Thank You for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
