             One pot meal are life saver in busy days and even lazy days. This onion rice is very simple and easy to make in half an hour time. Goes very well with raitha and spicy gravy. I have used crushed onions and you can replace it with whole or chopped onions in the recipe.  I am sharing this recipe Blogging Marathon 38 under the theme "Rice Dishes".
