One of the specialties of cooking from the state of Andhra Pradesh is they use shallots instead of normal onions. The use of shallots in cooking chicken dishes make the taste of their chicken dishes lots better than cooked in normal onions.

      five senses thanks for the comments and shallots are nothing more than the onions you use for sirke wale pyaz or vinegar onions. They are small onions and available everywhere.

      @ Moonlake thanks for the vote.
