Sirke Wala Pyaz
Sirke Wala Pyaz is onions pickled in vinegar. When purple onions are dipped in vinegar it turns a beautiful pink and a delight to the taste buds.
Boil and cool the water.
Peel the onions and rinse them under cold water .
Pat dry completely.
Clean and dry a non reactive jar (glass/ ceramic).
Add the half of the the salt to the jar. Place the onions on top of the salt. Pour the vinegar on top. Add enough water to cover the onions. Close the lid and give a gentle shake.
Set aside in a cool dark place
You can use it the next day or for better flavor let it sit for 3 days. Once opened transfer to the fridge and use within a week.
Red pearl onions gives the best color. If not available use regular red onions or shallots.
You could add green chilies or garlic to it as well. If adding these let the pickle sit undisturbed for 3 days before opening.
I prefer to make these with red onions, but when not available add a couple slices of beets to the white onions to give the purple color.
