Traditional dishes are very tasty and highly demanded item always. We can make traditional dishes with vegetables and non-vegetables. Dishes will be changing different places because methods of preparations will be different. Every place will have its own traditional and special dishes. South Indians have many tasty traditional dishes especially Keralites. I am using traditional dishes on daily basis because it is very good to health. Many hotels are there in Gulf countries with Kerala special tasty traditional dishes. 
I would like to share traditional Kerala style Onion curry without Coconut through this article. Normally we are making traditional dish with Coconut but here I have not used Coconut but taste is similar to that. We can make this with limited ingredients and I used Poppy Seeds paste to get good thickness for this dish. It is medium spicy dish and Tomato increases its taste. I am preparing this dish sometimes and it is super combination with Chapati. This recipe is very useful for vegetarians. Its main attraction is its taste. This is very easy method so it can make easily at home so we need not to spend more time for making this. This will be helpful when you need to make any vegetarian dish.
