  3. Hello Alka aunty, your recipes are so authentic and tasteful. Thank you for putting in the effort and sharing them. I have a query, is there any substitute for onion, we avoid onion and garlic specially in the chaliya… And otherwise too, can you suggest a substitute to get the same texture and form for onions. Thx
