Small Onion Pepper Fry


Onion or Shallot Pepper Fry is the traditional fry which  I learnt from my Grandma. She makes it often and she says that it cures mouth ulcer. This Shallot or Small Onion Pepper Fry really gives a delightful combo  with any rice. It can also be simply mixed with hot rice and had. A simple but finger licking curry.
