Yeah, I know; heresy.
But I'm dealing with an onion allergy (plus the whole vegetarian-therefore-no-eggs issue),
1. Okay to use: Green onions, garlic, onion powder
Not okay: Any other onions (other than in powder form), shallots.
I'd love to be able to make some for my girlfriend
2. And to make it even tougher on you guys, I'd like to be able to make it without eggs, to make it truly vegetarian. Any suggestions? Or should I not fight 5,000 years of culinary history, and instead make her some nice Indian food instead? :-)
