Health benefits of Onion?
Are there any health benefits of eating onion, both cooked or raw? my daughter does not like onion. If it is good for health, I could look into introducing it to her. more
Thanks Richi. Will try that. more
that will do....she can have spring onions, so make her eat them first like putting in paranthas or noodles/maggi. you can also grate onions in the dough and make paranthas with adding besan to it. Try them...she may like it more
Wow! Didn't realize that onion was so healthy. Thanks to both of you. Are there are any advantages of eating raw onion (like in salad) or putting onion paste in the curry is as good as eating it raw? She does not like the pieces. So, if I put the onion paste in the curry, she does not complain :) more
