Hey its a nice recipe. I tried it. The erragadda karam is my favorite. But I think the onions are different in US. It is tasting bitter. I used yellow onions and also the red ones I found in Indian stores. Do you know anything so that I can make it without the bitterness. It will be of great help. Thanks in advance.
