    This is a tasty starter that can be found in every Indian restaurant around the West of Scotland. I’ve tried loads of recipes but this one really hits the spot in terms of authenticity in relation to the best of restaurant recipes. In Scotland we eat our spiced onions with Indian poppadoms but you could serve these as a chutney, side dish or dip.
