Shallots originated in Asia. They traveled to India and the eastern Mediterranean. Dried shallot is a more subtle and sweet tasting component. It can be used as a vegetable or a condiment.
Dried shallot has a more sweet flavor compared to the onions. They are great use in raw applications where you want an oniony flavor without too much punch. Shallots are more delicate and aromatically perfumed.
