It tastes yummy on top of burgers .We usually have it with cutlets, chicken or beef ularthiyathu and the onion pickle is called sallas. However I substitute the vinegar with lime juice and it tastes even better.I make it fresh every time I need and store the remaining in fridge for up to four days.
The pungent taste of the onion is reduced considerably.Let us say by 80% happy!!
Red onion -1 big thinly sliced lengthwise
lime juice-of 1 lime or vinegar -1 tablespoon
salt to taste
green chili/ripe one- 1 cut into rounds
In a bowl mix all the ingredients and lightly squeeze it with hand .Let it rest for two hours or until the onions turn pink.
Store it in a glass bottle with a tight lid .How easy was that!
