THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The price of shallot has hit record-high. The price has risen from Rs. 40 per kg to Rs. 120 per kg. Merchents say it’s the highest price shallot has ever recorded in history.

Most of shallot to Kerala comes from Tamil Nadu. In Pollachi, Tamil Nadu, one kind of shallot sells for Rs. 98 per kg, and the other kind sells for Rs. 110 per kg, and when this comes to Kerala, the price becomes Rs. 110 per kg and Rs. 130 per kg respectively with the retailers.

The famine in Tamil Nadu has led to the reduced production of shallot. There are fears that if the famine continues, the price of shallot will raise further.

People who have a taste for onions and hoteliers have found refuge in the common onion, the price of which is Rs. 13 per kg in the market. Kerala depends on Pune for this common onions.

Though the common onion is a favourite among North Indians, shallot is the preferred type of onion among Malayalees. Everything from the regular sambhar to other commonly made dishes has shallot as an ingredient. Even if always priced higher than the common onion, there are far and few households in Kerala that don’t use shallot in everyday cooking. But with this price rise, many housewives in Kerala have reluctantly shut the doors of their kitchen to shallot and have invited in the common onion.
