Daily Prompt : INGREDIENT

I'm part of Post A Day 2014

What’s the one item in your kitchen you can’t possibly cook without? A spice, your grandma’s measuring cup, instant ramen — what’s your magic ingredient, and why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us KITCHEN.

Onion. The magic ingredient without which recipe isn’t simply complete. I feel its the best vegetable invented by God. Onion symbolizes many things about life. Why else did Carl Sandburg say, “Life is an onion – you peel it off one layer at a time and sometimes cry”. Only the realized souls know the value of it.

Onion is such a distinguished and respected vegetable that a news source agency of US has honored it by naming itself The Onion. No doubt it has seen pretty good success and going strong given the love for even the name of it. Comparisons are wrong but I still need to do it, to bring out the distinction the onion has got among its peer vegetables. For example many might’ve heard about the famous film critic site Rotten tomatoes. The reason its hugely followed? because it’s ‘rotten’ tomatoes.

Have you had your onion today?

Like every good thing on this earth has critics, there are onion-haters for onions. I can’t imagine why someone can possibly dislike it. They’ve even gone to the extent of fabricating quotes on the lines of the famous saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” to “An onion a day keeps everyone away”.  Agreed! they cause bad breath. From when did breath become more important than health and life? Moreover there are plenty of toothpaste and commercial stuff which claim to fight bad breath. Use them. In fact studies even recommend to eat onion every day

Yeah. Onion makes you cry. Tell me some fruit which makes you laugh. None. Onion reminds you of the pains of life. Is there any other fruit or vegetable with these mysterious powers? Why did God bestow such powers to onion? Because its ‘special’. Long live onion!
