Gone are the days when one of the most versatile food in a poor man’s kitchen used to be potatoes and onions. The average Delhi woman is having a tough time managing her house-hold budget as the prices of vegetables are always in a flux. Vegetables that add the much needed zing to Indian food such as ginger and garlic are being sold at Rs 200 and Rs 100 per kg respectively. They are now among the priciest in South Delhi. Anita Singh, a resident of Vasant Kunj said the prices of onion, tomato and potato have gone up and every time she visits the market, the prices are higher than before.
