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 a great use in raw applications where you want an oniony flavor without too much punch. Shallots are more delicate and aromatically perfumed.
