Bhubaneswar: With the price of onions rising sharply over the last few days, home budgets are being hit. Onions are reportedly being sold at a price over Rs 50 per kilogram in Odisha.
Scarce supply from Nasik and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh have attributed to the rise in the price of the vegetable.
Making matters worse, the price is only going to rise until new crops reach the market.
The rising prices have already started impacting restaurants and small eateries which have resorted to reducing the number of onions used in food items and salads. Homemakers are also using less of onions so that the home budget is not disturbed in the middle of the month.
