Heat a pan. Add a tsp of oil, Add ½ tsp jeera. Add the stuffed onions and roast all the sides well. It will take 20 to 25 mins to cook.Please ensure it is a little crunchy and not too soft. Garnish with chopped coriander.
Grease a microwave safe bowl. Place the stuffed onions in the greased bowl. Microwave on high (800 w) for 2 mins. Add the extra masala if any and microwave for 1 more minute. The stuffed onions are ready.
