Slice onions (red or white, both work) into half rings. The quantity you want to caramelize depends on you as leftover onions keep in fridge upto a week.
  • Heat cooking oil in a heavy bottomed pan, take approximately one tablespoon oil for each onion.
  • Add a pinch of salt and stir fry till they become golden.
  • If the onions stick to the bottom of the pan, add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and stir. Add one tablespoon brown sugar to add extra flavour.
  • Switch off the flame and allow to cool.
  • Store in fridge or use in sandwiches, burgers, pizza and more.
